Ooops Forgot To Mention the Lock-Down

I got an automated phone call from my son's high school today saying the school had been in total lock-down for the past 2 hours - but not to worry, the danger was over and the kids had been released for lunch - and besides they had ordered up some extra law enforcement so everything is spiffy-doodle.

This is the second lock-down in a month.

I managed to attend public school my entire life and never had the pleasure of being locked in a classroom so I wouldn't get shot.

I am taking my son out of the public school system and putting him into private school. I will also vote for the voucher system from here on out because our school system is dead.




But why did they do the lock down? What was the danger?

So you are saying the lockdown was the school's fault?

The first time, my son said there was somebody with a gun at the junior high which is 2 blocks away.

The second was a threat made on myspace. That is all I have been able to find out.

Sigh. I guess what I was really saying is that I am scared and frustrated and I don't want lockdowns - meaning I don't want the things that cause lockdowns.

It isn't the school's fault, it is society's fault.

Private schools weed out some of that society.

Umm,that's the kind of uninformed panic that has the private schools bursting with out-of-control children and helicopter parents. Get involved in the school! Ask the administration questions; often!
