Administration, Students Unclear on Safety Procedures

By Sydnee Harris, ’16 and Kaily Baril, ’16

Since the start of this school year, there have been fifteen school shootings in the United States. In five of those cases, the shootings either started or took place in a public area within the school, like a cafeteria, library, or courtyard. A recent inquiry by the Eddies Echo into lockdown procedures at Edward Little High School made it clear that the lockdown procedures for the cafeterias are dangerously unclear.

The Auburn School District policies on social media interaction between students and teachers are outdated.

Many teenagers and their teachers use social media, but are the two groups allowed to be friends online? The answer is somewhat murky, as the school policies are technologically outdated and don’t reference specific social networking.

Sheldon Bang, senior at Edward Little High School, ended his final wrestling season with his 100th match victory on Jan. 15, and on Feb. 15 he became the Class A State Champion.

Bang has been wrestling on and off for around nine years, five of them with a youth wrestling program and the other four high school. “I love the competition. No other sport matters as much on an individual level as wrestling does, in my opinion,” Bang said. “When it comes to performance it’s just your skill against the other opponents skill, your success doesn’t depends on how well the rest of the team performs.”

Sheldon, along with his brothers Steven, Shawn, and Skyler, started wrestling as child. “We all started wrestling at the young age, following in our father’s footsteps who also wrestled in high school,” Bang said.
