  • I don't know what the school systems to should. At first I thought all schools should just be closed until after the holidays to give kids and parents and school personnel a chance to think and grieve and make decisions to start fresh in January. But maybe it would be better to go ahead and have school as scheduled so the children (parents, teachers) could get the feeling of normalcy. If there can be such a thing now.

  • Gunfire in a Dallas neighborhood is hardly news. There will be many copycat threats because of the fear citizens are showing.

  • Having school lockdowns is something in place for the safety of the students, it happens often, and it rarely makes the news. A couple of months ago, schools here were on lockdown because some idiot's pet chimpanzee had gotten loose. Before that, a school was on lockdown because another idiot had pulled a knife on his girlfriend a few blocks away and police were negotiating with him.
    Having lockdown procedures and lockdown drills is important when something around the school happens. It will also help protect the students if anything ever happens IN the school, as well.
