Holy Crap

How did he get in?

Every parent of school-age children mentally reviewed his/her school’s security measures. I am fairly sure that most parents could point out any number of mouse holes, big or small.

Schools are supposed to be safe zones. We spend countless budget dollars on anti-bullying programs, but how safe are our buildings? I’m not saying that we need to install metal detectors at every entrance. I am saying that today’s events should initiate a comprehensive review of safety precautions in every district, in every state. Budgets need to be revised to allow for our schools to be safe havens.

I think schools can forgo hand sanitizer and anti-bullying posters next year to make room for security.
