    I live by this school. Police and TV helicopters have been hovering our neighborhood since noon. Police sirens are everywhere. Diamond Bar is very peaceful. It is unfortunate that burglaries are on the rise lately.

    partial lockdown, a full lockdown would not have let parents come to pick you up until eveything had benn cleared and would not have alowed bathroom breaks, &c. lockdown lasted from 1:45 until 5:35

  • Sophia Arnold

    Yeah the lock down was boring staying after school 2 to 3 hours isn’t something most of us lorbeer students are used to but once we found stuff to do while waiting for are parents it was kinda enjoyable.

  • Nicole

    i am a lorbeerian.. and the lock down for me was confusing because the “supervisors” were calling my name for 1 hour! and i didnt hear it because the class i was in.. speaker was broken D; and every time it came on. it would make a loud squeak. so i left around 5:40. and i was yelled at and got in trouble by the supervisors because it was my fault the speaker was broken -___- like really? and they should have been much more organized ! ;)

    Lorbeer Middle School students have disgraceful language arts and spelling skills.

    • Hi
