The Safe and Sound at Sandy Hook Initiative Feel School Safety is Being Forgotten
A group of parents who lost their children in the horrific Sandy Hook school shooting that took place last year have been working together to raise money for other communities for more secure schools. Their initiative is called The Safe and Sound at Sandy Hook.
However, this group of parents have recently spoke out stating that the new Gun Policy discussions, school safety seems to have been forgotten. The parents are stating their concerns that with all the discussions going on regarding guns and gun control in the US, school safety is slipping through the cracks.
They want to remind the country that with the incident of Sandy Hook Elementary, the school already had safety procedures put into place. All visitors were required to sign into the school. However, if a visitor is able to sign in, what happens when that visitor begins attacking the school? There are not enough safety procedures for a situation such as that. Schools can do everything they wish to stop intruders from entering their schools, but they also need to prepare students and faculty for what happens when that intruder successfully enters the school.
What is you’re child’s school doing for safety?
