The two male drivers were Johnson High School students, according to a letter from Principal Gary Comalander.

On Sunday, students and parents gathered outside the school's entrance to remember their classmates. They filled the fence with stuffed animals, flowers, candles and crosses as part of a vigil. One parent said her daughter, who was friends with one of the teen boys, was so devastated she stayed home to grieve with her brother.

"Even me, I was crying because I was like, 'Oh my God, that's so sad," said Lily Arranaga, the parent.

Comalander said counselors will be available to meet with students in the library at 8 a.m. to help those needing to grieve.

The district did not release the identities of the two students.
