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.
