I come to school Monday and walking towards 1st period a bunch of trees were cut in half and left hanging upside down.
The next day, get to school and during 3rd period the D building, administrative building, was locked down with local cops, the fire department, medics, FBI, and Haz-Mat. Someone sent 10 snail mail messages all containing a white powder which at the time they thought was anthrax. Turned out to be a harmless powder though (talcum powder). In one of the last snail mail messages apparently they had a list of “demands” and some gripes about school policies (something about the hat policy from what I heard) and mentioned that this “wasn’t their first time”.
Today, I get to school and there is a swastika etched into the schools main lawn and earlier that morning thieves broke into a gun store in the city and stole more than 100 guns, two being shotguns.
There is rumors going around that there will be a code red tomorrow (drill, I believe) and some sort of safety talk – Not sure though.
All in all, this kinda sucks. Life couldn’t be busier for me and for all of this to happen on top of that just really feels like a jab to the stomach. Most of the students up until now have been pretty mellow about the whole thing, but who knows how things will go tomorrow. Hopefully things will just continue normally and the whole incident just blows over. None of us need more drama in this world.
The worst part is, this community is a generally friendly community, so it’s surprising/sad to see it happening.
