A few Willows High School students are facing trouble with the law and their school after threatening the children of school board members on social media, according to a Willows police report.

Willows High School Principal Holly McLaughlin filed a police report Friday morning after finding a 16-year-old male student, and two female students, aged 16 and 17, posted the threats on Twitter. The male student is being referred to Glenn County Juvenile Probation. The two girls were counseled at school but face no further action.

These threats were reported the morning after the school board voted unanimously not to rehire two Willows High School teachers students had been rallying to keep on staff.
On Thursday the students held a protest and instead of going to class at 8 a.m., students sat in the hallway to show support for Paul Gadbois and Paul Bailey.

The #SaveThePauls protest then moved to the Thursday night school board meeting, where hundreds of students and parents attempted to convince the board to renew the teachers' contracts.

During the meeting, the board voted 5-0 not to grant tenure to Gadbois and Bailey. The two teachers will remain employed through the end of the 2014-15 school year.
