Man who wasn't allowed to be around his kids called saying he was coming to get them and that no one was going to stop him and he started waving a gun around when he got there. School was put on lock down and police arrested him

Was it when the afternoon classes were being held? My little sisters go there in the morning and no one said a thing about it.

Might want to get your facts straight, guy. There was nobody with a gun and nobody was arrested. I was there watching the whole time. Way to try to get people scared to take their kids to school though, guy.

Honestly, they can't report every lockdown situation to us. Imagine the frenzy that would put everyone in. As long as my kids were safe, I'm happy.

I agree. At the end of the day I knew what I needed to know--that my child was at home safe with me and that he goes to a school where safety is a top priority.

The hell you say. No school for any age should ever hide that kind of thing from parents. At the very least send a note home or something. Parents need to know what their kids have been through.
