Currently, there are few deterrents or protocols in place to protect the kids. We started a metal detector program for schools and agencies many years ago and have probably sent out 30 or so detectors to schools and other places. Here's is my plea to you, please use them
Someone apparently called in the threat, although, we don't know what the threat was. Shooting? Fire? bomb? You usually don't find those things out. I get it, no reason to cause panic for no reason. However, as a parent, every threat is a reason to panic knowing what has occurred in recent years.
