Q: Were my kids civil rights violated during district wide lockdown? No lunch and everyone had to pee in buckets in class

The threat was called in to local PD regarding the high school. District lockdown all school for several hours. Many students including my kids didn’t get lunch that day. Students had to pee in bucket’s in class while teacher held up a blanket. PD posted on FB they believed it was a hoax. In spite of PD statement the school district went on absurdly extreme lockdown. Do I have a case against the district?

A: It is possible that the lockdown and lack of provisions for lunch and bathroom breaks during the lockdown could be seen as a violation of students' civil rights. However, whether or not there is a case against the district would depend on a number of factors, including the specific circumstances of the lockdown, any policies or procedures the district has in place regarding lockdowns, and the actions taken by the district after the lockdown. It would be best to consult with a civil rights attorney who can review the details of the situation and advise you on the best course of action.
