  1. Here is something interesting that needs clarification-the three surroundings schools, Fermi (the closest), Scholastic Academy and School 23 were supposedly put on “lock down”.
    Staff at 23 were told not to leave the building because it was a lockdown. Staff at Fermi were told to shut their classroom doors and moved students out of the front playground while students in the back (directly above Ash Street) continued to play and teachers left the building for lunch. Were principals told to tell staff to stay inside?
