I really hope that the Principal (who by the way, handled everything extremely well) will give the kids an explanation of what occurred. They need to know the truth and not all the rumors that are flying.
For those who aren't familiar with HBHS, it is located directly across the street from the Police Station. Of all the locations around, this is by far, the most ideal. When my daughter text me about what was happening, my first reaction was to let her know she was safe and it would all be fine. Her MAJOR low for the day was that she was to have her braces taken off just at the time they were evacuating everyone and putting the entire school on lock down. And to a seventeen year old, that is a major low.
