This has nothing to do with EKHS. It happened near the school and this is a precaution. They could have used an intersection near the assault, like they do in GR.

shot at mid day, across from the high school.
when they catch the shooter, they'll say 'he such a good boy, and he never would do nuthin' like that, don't know whut happened cuz he didn't do nuthin' with no drugs'.
white, black, hispanic, whatever, and he won't have a father at home, of course.
could be wrong, but that's a common scenario.
yeah

Wrong side of town...they are no where near eachother!

WHY is the school saying it's NOT in lockdown, but all the KIDS are saying it is?!?! Does the school think none of these kids are communicating with their parents/friends/etc?

I hope everyone is alright too. But, if you are a student "of" EKHS, why are you on a Topix forum and not in school?(Unless you are using a school computer to scan conversations).

Talk about people just trying to talk. The School contacted WoodTV and said the school was not on lockdown. Law enforcement told them they were, but the school called and said no they were not. SO please quit the "my kid is texting me from there" stuff.

Not a lockdown, but a shelter in place. Just like you would do at home - lock the doors and don't let anyone in or out. My son is a student and he says everything is fine. No one is freaking out.
hmmm

It's not just on here that people are saying that though...comments over at 13 parents are saying the same thing!
