6:01 am
this morning. we don't have much to report. that's good news that makes life easier for you getting out on the door and let's take you to the golden gate bridge and been reporting of a single spinout earlier and that's really all we have of major concern, even across parts of the peninsula and the south bay not really looking at our highways being affected all that much. there is an accident before 101 and we're seeing the typical slowing on 101, as well. slowing through the sunol grade but otherwise wide-open roads on this friday and no fooling you here. >> thank you, anthony. well, not everybody is accepting acceptance week. curriculum focusing on lesbian, gay and transgender issues at a san ramon school has some parents threatening to take their kids out of class. live in san ramon and, steph, there are the parent who say they're mad and voice their concerns to districters in just a few hours they say they think their kids are too young in middle school to talk about these issues. >> yeah, that's definitely part of it, kris.

good morning to you. that meeting between the district superintendent and these upset parents set at 11:00 this morning at district offices. but they say if they're not happy with the solution that is presented, they're ready to not only take their kids out of class, but ready to go to court really as a last resort. make sure their voices are heard. now, more than 500 signatures on a petition addressed to this middle school prince and the superintendent. the parents involved want acceptance week to day. a day dedicated by some students to spreading awareness of safety and respect specifically for those who identify as lgbtq. some parents are protesting especially after viewing some of the lesson plans and videos. one parent writing on the petition, my daughter who attends wrms isn't even comfortable watching her parents kiss, so she's definitely not going to be comfortable with
6:03 am
this video. meantime, the san ramon valley district says it was a student leadership group that came up with this awareness week and the lesson plans and what's going to be talked about. the principal here also revised the lessons and sent the new ones to the parents for review after he got a lot of e-mails and calls about this adding parents can opt their students out if they want. again, parentsing that they will walk out if the school and district don't satisfy what they want. and this is hopefully going to be all resolved at this meeting set again at 11:00 this morning in district offices. live here in san ramon, stephanie chuang "today in the bay." 6:03 right now on your and it is happening, again. we are learning more about a new racist ahomphobic text scandal. police investigators discovering a series of text messages while investigating officer jason lie for an alleged sexual assault. this discovery coming in the
