I go to ford middle school and the office first told us to lock our class room doors at 2:30 at the end of 7th period. we procedded to eighth period till 3:30(when they usauly release us) the walkers were held till around 5:00 or so and the busses arrived at around 4:17.There were at least 3 helicoptors and lots of SWAT and police in the area.i think the school handeled the situation very well and got us out efficiantly.

I was very upset that the school would not tell me why the school was in lockdown. That caused undo worry on my part. They should have told us that the students were safe and the basic of what was involved! I approve of the way the children were handled, was very impressed that everyone had to go into the school and show proper I.D in order to get your child. I do believe my child was protected the whole time. I just wish more informatian could have been given over the phone to the parents.

I WAS VERY CONCERNED HEARING THIS NEWS FROM MY 8TH GRADER WHO CALLED TO SAY THEY WOULD NOT LET HIM WALK HOME FROM SCHOOL. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED AT HOW THE SCHOOL OFFICIALS AND ALLEN POLICE DEPT HANDLED THE SITUATION AND NEVER FEARED FOR MY CHILD OR ANY OTHERS SAFETY. I WAS ASKED TO SHOW I'D. AND WAS VERY HAPPY TO SEE SUCH PRECAUTIONS WERE BEING TAKEN. THE SCHOOL WAS VERY WELL ORGANIZED AND EVERYTHING WAS BEING HANDLED IN A ORDERLY FASHION. I TOO WAS CONFUSED HOWEVER AS TO WHAT WAS GOING ON, SINCE THERE WERE SO MANY POLICE OFFICERS, TEACHERS, SWAT TEAM, ETC.. I ONLY WISH THEY HAD GIVEN US MORE INFORMATION AT THE TIME BUT KNOW EVERYTHING THAT WAS BEING DONE WAS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF OUR KIDS. I APPLAUD ALLEN POLICE DEPT. AS WELL AS FORD MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR THERE SUCCESSFUL EFFORTS TO PROTECT OUR CHILDEN.
