Activities at Great Lakes Elementary School were kept inside Wednesday, May 8, due to an increase of traffic and people in the area during a protest at the nearby Enbridge building. It was not a lockdown, according to a Facebook post from Principal Ryan Haroldson, and normal school activities continued inside the building.

Outdoor activities at the school were curtailed for about an hour beginning at 9:10 a.m. and ending at 10:07 a.m. Students were able to take their morning breaks outside and go outdoors for recess.

The protest lasted from 8:12-10:41 a.m., according to Superior Assistant Police Chief Matt Markon. At one point, there were about 20 protestors. A California man was arrested for resisting or obstructing an officer and trespass.
