    I go to Proviso West the high school that was on lockdown today. I had just got into biology class at 7th period (last class of the day). Then the announcements came on talking about it so the teacher locked the door and turned off the lights. Then we waited in there for about an hour but while we were waiting we just talked and stuff. I wasn’t scared nor any of the people in my class were. It was actually kind of normal like one of those intruder alert drills we did in elementary and middle school. So yea that’s what went down that day in my class.
