Sad times

I was in an elementary school recently that had a Lock-Down drill.

Cops inside and out.

No one allowed in or out of the school.

Kids locked in their rooms with lights off, shades drawn.

Isn't it sad that we would even have to contemplate such a thing?

We've practiced it as an in-service activity but haven't done it with the kids yet. I have a kid who FREAKS during fire drills because of the noise and the stress . . . I can't imagine what she would do during a lock-down drill.

It's very sad and very scary.

Oh yes, so sad.

I've been a sub teacher when a practice lock down was done. Even doing a practice was scary.
