A couple of toy guns are blamed for causing a school lockdown Friday morning in Granite City.  Apparently two kids brought their toy guns along as their dad walked them to school.  A bus driver spotted the father walking home with the toys, and called police thinking they were real.  The school was immediately placed on lockdown while authorities confirmed the weapons were merely toys.  

The district is planning to notify parents.
