If you middle school child was on a hit-list at school.
A kid who has had problems made a hit list at school... it had about 20 different kids on it - my child being one of them ( we also have an elem. child too ) ....
Nothing was done about this for a couple days after finding the letter...
the kid who wrote it was then kicked out of school for TWO days and is aloud back at school -- her father is a COP ... so I see it in a way that it he might have "smoothed it over" or something - I also see it as there is guns in the house and easily accesable to the child ( we live in a small town and it is also know that the family is avid hunters, meaning it is common sense that there are guns and such in the home) ....
This happened last week. my kids have not been back to school since - I have a younger cousin who is also in middle school and has went back to school on Monday and has said that the girl who made the threats laughs about it , and doesnt deny that she wants to shoot up the school -- yet nothing is being done about it !!!!
It makes me so sick to think of my kids going back to school... especially this school , even before this I have thought about homeschooling ( I would use virtual learning and also I would do alot of teaching and things too ) ... This isnt the first time the school has failed in my opinion and I know there is no perfect, safe school ( which we wouldnt be able to move anyways) ......
My husband goes back and forth, one second he agrees because he is afraid but then the next he wants them to be in school - only so they can play sports ( even though they can be in alot of activies and sports without being in the school system) ......
I dont think it is just my nerves from this incident, I think it is something we should do.... What would you do ? Wouldnt you be scared to death to send your kids back to school ?

Go to the school board and file a complaint
File a police report about the incident and your concerns
File a restraining order
I would not just let this go away...I would get loud about this because this girl has said more than once that she's wants to shoot the school up and laughed - clearly there is an issue there.
