Hi mf1238@georgetown.edu Welcome to the Canvas Community and apologies for the somewhat late reply.  If by "locked" you mean closed for comments, there is information on how to re-open that discussion here: How do I close a discussion for comments in a course?  As the link at the beginning of that lesson explains, this would have occurred because you set an UNTIL date in the settings for a graded discussion.

On the other hand, if students are stating that it is locked for some reason, double-check that it's not included in a module that has some setting causing it to be locked.  That can often be due to a restriction date or simply not publishing the module itself, which would cause the items within the module (even if they have been published) not being accessible.

Hope this helps a bit, Morgan.
