A is the main entrance because the school was built on a hill, and D is all the way on the bottom. this morning i was in school (MWHS) and it was a half day for parent teacher conferences. last week, we got let out early for a half day because that's when parent teacher conferences were supposed to be originally, but the snow caused the whole district to go home early. there was a threat of a weapon being in the school. i was locked down in my math classroom like the rest of the school. we were told that we couldn't go out in the halls and were to stay in our classrooms calmly until the situation was resolved. they told us that they would go and dismiss floor by floor, room by room, and we would be escorted by police and our teacher. we were to follow them to the main entrance and go straight to the busses. we were supposed to get out at 10:24, and were not even told about that there was a threat until about 11 am. no one was able to leave the room no matter what. no bathroom, or lockers. everyone was scared. since i was the last classroom on D, i thought we would be last out, but they did D floor first, so i got out earlier than C, B, and A. we were the second group on D floor to be released, but we had had to stay in a straight line, not look at any direction but ahead, and stay silent until we were outside. at that point, there were all sorts of rumors flying around about a bomb threat. i was set to go with my friend julia to pine tree, (the elementary school) where her father teaches and my little brother is his student because we would help him out with a lesson. i went over to the bus that went nearest by pine tree, and there was about 4 or 5 other people on the bus besides me because they were all on D. we were there until about 11:15 until people from C started showing up, and then B and then A . the people who were talking about the weapons were "detained" and no one was hurt. i am still kind of shaken up by this because a few years ago the school was cleared out because of a bomb threat.. not to mention the school left us in out classrooms, in the dark about any details until they told us that there was a threat. i went to pine tree all right, and actually relayed all the info i knew to a few former teachers and some secretaries, and one of my little brother's other teachers. the parent teacher conferences were obviously cancelled, and they might be rescheduled for next friday. hopefully, that happens because that will give my school a half day to kick off the winter recess i am really glad that no one got hurt.
