There are new security measures in our school. Teachers are not allowed on campus before 7:45 am. Nobody but students are allowed entry onto campus without signing in through the office with a photo ID and a name badge indicating exactly where on campus you’ll be. This includes morning drop-off, when for years and years, you could walk to school with your child, right to his classroom door, chat with his teacher, other parents, school administrators, the PTA.
It’s a necessary shame.
Our son’s teacher told me that in our school district, at a high school just up the road from us, there have been bomb threats, and students have been reporting that their parents want–yes, want–them to bring guns to school for safety.
What is wrong with people?
