Schedules changed at the last minute as All School Mass was canceled on October 9. The school day got switched up halfway through the day when the decision was made to cancel Mass due to a tornado watch. The announcement was made 10 minutes before classes were supposed to dismiss to the big gym. Many students were involved in Mass, who had already left their classes and began setting up or getting ready. One student involved in Mass, Luke Griffin(11), was an usher who was already in the gym when he heard the news.

“Well this has been 20 minutes wasted that I could have used for taking notes,” Griffin said.

Nora Ritchie(11) could not understand why we still had classes if Mass was cancelled.

“I feel like if there’s a tornado warning then cancelling mass is not enough. I think just to be safe we should all go home early before the tornado hits,” Ritchie said.

Principal Jim Franz believed we were safer in classes than in the gym. Students could go about the normal day but it would not be smart to all gather in one gym right before a tornado. The tornado never ended up coming through the campus, but Mr. Franz is better safe than sorry.

“The gym is not a tornado friendly structure. It’s probably the last place you’d want to be during a tornado,” Franz said.

Classes went on as a normal late start, even though no bad weather hit the campus. A minor inconvenience for students; however, is an outcome preferred to the dangerous situation that could have happened.
