We should all follow Denis Waitley’s advice heading into a big test: “Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised.” But some test day surprises surpass the bounds of common sense… like deer attacks. This past Saturday morning, a deer crashed the party during an SAT administration at Lockport High School.
School Board President John A. Linderman said the deer struck a door in the music wing, damaging a pane on the door, and then ran off.
“Some of the kids saw it,” Linderman said. He said no injuries were reported.The pane of glass on the door was broken.
Linderman said that despite the drama, the kids were able to complete their testing.
This is the first time I’ve heard about a test disrupted by a deer. Have you heard of other test day wildlife encounters?
