If this happened at midnight, I'd be interested as to why they didnt get the kids in custody until 2:45am - I was listening to the police band while this was going on - one officer reported seeing *3* youths in the building but was only able to find 2 of them ... I'm more shocked that no statement has come from the district on the matter. Just a simple statement to parents giving a "heads up" of some of the shenanigans going on might help keep it from happening again. I'd also be interested in *how they got the door open* in the first place to prop it - did they break the lock or did someone NOT LOCK IT?
