With the tragic rise in school shootings, I know that parents and students are worried about safety while inside the school shooting. Lizze and I are worried as well. It’s really important that as parents, we find out what our schools are doing to keep our kids safe while they are in the school building.
Don’t make this anymore complicated than it needs to be. Be very direct, come straight out and ask what safety measures are being taken to ensure the safety of the kids in their care.
This afternoon, there was an announcement sent out from our school administration, in regards to an immediate change they are making, in order to help ensure safety.
The school is banning any and all backpacks, starting tomorrow. This will limit someone’s ability to sneak a weapon into the school. It’s not perfect but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
They will be are purchasing clear bags for the kids, should they need or want to use one.
Some people might complain about privacy but fuck privacy. I don’t care if you see what’s in my son’s bag. He doesn’t need a bag. I don’t care if he needs to carry his folder or whatever out in the open. If there’s nothing to hide, there shouldn’t be a problem. My only concern is safety at this point.
There are other safety measures in place but this is the newest change and I wanted to see what your school is doing.
What is your school doing to keep your kids safe?
