I hope the officers are combined with strict efforts to keep all entrances and exits LOCKED AT ALL TIMES. It's really easy to get in a UC school.

How about the school system invest in bullet proof doors and glass in the schools? It could be done gradually over a period of a few years. Locking or baracading a door doesn't do much good if the door and glass is not bullet proof. The schools have athletic sponsors who are willing to donate hundreds and thousands of dollars to sports. How about having sponsors who are willing to donate a bullet proof door or window to a classroom?

There are 5 UC properties. There is the elementary school, middle school, and high school. There is also the bandhouse and the in school suspension classroom which like the bandhouse is a separate building. Last week i visited both the elementary and high schools. At the elementary, i just walked right in and at the high school, a freshman kindly opened the door for me. I drop my daughter off every morning, pulling off, wondering which school in the world will be next. Stop supporting sports, and support the safety of our children. Thank you and have a great night.
