Enbridge protest changes Great Lakes Elementary activities
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.
