Video taken from inside of a classroom shows Balboa High School students on lockdown after there was a report of a gun on the San Francisco campus.

We talked to students and parents as they headed in to Balboa High Friday morning. We found the parents were more nervous than the kids.

"I feel super nervous. I was thinking about not bringing my daughter to school but she insisted to come," said Hilda Ruiz after dropping off her freshman.

One parent we talked to thinks the schools should install metal detectors.

Ruiz would like to see the parents get more involved. "We need to get access to their backpacks and check them. And give them a lot of love. That's what our students need today -- our love, our time," said Ruiz.

Sophomore Nia Anderson was ready for things to get back to normal today after being on lockdown for two hours in her classroom.

"At least I hopefully get to see my friends today," she said.

Police haven't provided any updates on the investigation.
