Think what you will...but it's not going to change my opinion of the place or the fact that I believe that it's a safe place to raise my children. "Blowing" really doesn't matter...it was good enough for me...and after living all over the states before I had kids...I believe it good enough for them as well.

The part I don't understand is that if the school was on lockdown, why is it that the parents don't find out about this until the night of in a letter? Shouldn't the school notify parents of such an issue while it is going on?
I don't know about you...but I'd sure rather find out about it by a letter later...as that means that while the situation was in progress...every available pair of eyes was looking after my children...not holed up in an office somewhere calling parents (so they can freak out and come to the school) or typing a letter. I WANT THEM WALKING THE HALLS, PATROLING, DOING THEIR BEST AND UTMOST TO KEEP MY BABIES SAFE. I used to be a teacher...and I would have given my life for any one of my 300 students if it came down to me or them, and I expect...no demand the same from the educators and faculty with regards to my children...so I'd much rather get a letter or a phone call from the automated system after the fact...cause then I know...that EVERYONE was doing their part to keep our children safe from harm.

During a lockdown situation I hardly doubt they have the time to call every parent and let them know whats going on. The could send maybe an e-mail to all parents in thier directory. But call every parent i don't think so!

Sorry about the Springtown Blows thing but eh What can I say I don't favor Springtown!
