So besides having Fire and Earthquake Drills, we now have Lockdown Drills...
We need to practice how to shut ourselves in so that we may stay safe, and away from any harm.
We recently had a fatal shooting (after school on Dec. 21) amongst High School students (gang related) at a Middle School nearby (8 blocks away from the elementary school where I teach). ALL schools are now on "high" alert.
This incident upset me...both physically and emotionally. Schools are supposed to be safe!!
