[BRIEF] Lightning Strikes Campus Wildlife

A thunderstorm near campus injures two birds

Gavin Leser, Writer

During the class change to sixth period on Sept. 16, a lightning strike came down near campus. Students walking in between classes reported hearing the strike from as far as the parking lot. The strike’s location is currently unknown. 

Following the storm, students were ushered inside and encouraged to stay in buildings. Head custodian Oscar Gonzalez rehabilitated one of the birds by fixing its wing. The other bird was brought inside by visual senior Katherine Johns. 

Administration does not yet know the extent of the damages, but it is known that a window was broken. After speaking with Ms. Finney, it was said that nothing concrete could be confirmed, but the district is looking into it.

This is an ongoing story.
