Student illness locks down Elk Creek High
Elk Creek High School was locked down for about an hour on Friday after a student began exhibiting signs of hallucinations, school officials said.
The student was sweating profusely and complained of a headache, interim Stony Creek Unified School District Superintendent Tracey Quarne reported.
Quarne said school leaders decided as a precaution to place the high school into lockdown around 10:20 a.m. to allow for emergency personnel to assess and clear the situation.
“No other schools or school sites were affected,” Quarne said.
Emergency personnel, including Steve Carpenter and Craig Whittle of the Elk Creek Volunteer Fire Department, Lt. Tim Asbury of the Glenn County Sheriff's Office, and personnel with Enloe Ambulance Services responded.
The student was transported to Glenn Medical Center by his family in good condition, Quarne said.
No search of the campus was deemed necessary, Quarne said.
The lockdown was lifted at 11:20 a.m., Quarne said.
