    I'm a student at Horizon, and we were in 2nd period when this happened, so here's my part of the story.

    When the lockdown was announced my English teacher immediately locked the door, and did what is required in lockdown. We continued watching Lord Of The Flies, and when it was over, we pretty much whipped out iPods and Cell phones. It sort of scared me, not knowing whether or not we were truly safe. We took it quite lightly, until I read this online. I'm really glad nothing happened- both of my parents live downtown, and my cell phone was dead, so I'd've been stuck for a while.

    There were loads of crazy rumors around my school though (Bombs, Ninjas, Hiding in the ceiling) which were amusing to hear.

    During my high school years it was 'cool' to call in bomb threats (there 5 one school year :eek:). Its pretty scary to be locked in a room not really knowing what's going on. Glad it didn't turn out bad!

    This has happened twice at my school since 2005 (the first time, it was a riot, and just last year, a threatening note). :eek:

    I guess that's what urban school systems give ya.

    I wouldn't call us "Urban" so much as "So Suburban it hurts"

    All the pseudo-gangstas and whatnot.

    Ah, well, I guess you'll find it at both ends of the spectrum!

    Yeah, you gotta watch out for those ninjas...

    Yeah, Scottsdale is about as suburban as it gets. Used to commute out there every day for work when I lived in Phoenix.

    Is this a misspelling, or I have just never heard of this particular shade of blonde?

    Glad everything turned out OK, apsterling.
