Whew!

It’s over. The police found two guns, but no threats were ever made. No one got hurt. And supposedly everything is “back to normal” after a 90-minute lockdown. Though I don’t know how anyone can expect the rest of the day to be “normal” after something like this.

Apparently, everyone at school thought this was just a drill (in light of the shootings at Virginia Tech) to start with…there was supposed to be a drill of some sort today, but nobody knew when it was going to be. After about half an hour, it was clear it WASN’T a drill.

Preteen should have some interesting stories to tell after school…

  1. This reminds me of the lockdown my Elementary school had during the Rodney King riots back in the 90’s. That was scary! We had a couple bomb threats but they didn’t find anything. Still having police and others swarm our K-3 school was very scary.
