  The annual blood drive took place on December 13, but it hit a snag when the school went in to a modified lockdown. The lockdown occurred during third period and lasted till until after lunch. It was due to stabbing at Auto Parts on A street.  The suspect was found about an hour later hiding in bushes. Five other schools were put on lockdown including Ilalko and Mt. Baker.

   Senior Brianna Crawford, president of sports medicine said, “It affected the numbers we got and the mentality of the blood dive”, said Crawford, “And it also affected how we had to move forward after the lockdown was lifted”.  

  Some kids were even stuck on the blood buses for about 40 minutes. During the lockdown and had to lock the doors to the blood buses.

  Junior Katie Severson said, “It was fine, we just waited to hear news about what happened and then Ms. Wilson came to get us off the bus”.

  Junior Tabetha Norris said, “I was donating blood when we went into lockdown and they [the blood technicians] were all super reassuring and I felt great”.

  The activity caused a backlog in the amount of students who were able to donate kids were cut off towards the end of the day. Kids anywhere from fourth period down were cut off or skipped. Crawford also said, “Close to 30 [kids got cut off due to the lockdown]”.

  However, the blood drive managed to get semi back on track, “The blood drive ran very smoothly with just a few kinks with scheduling but that was it”, said Crawford.
