It's a creepy week and for sure they don't want a copycat of what (supposedly) happened at Sandy Hook at your school this week.

I support their caution. So far so good, imho. I hope my kids' district is extra careful too.

Re: My kid's school district just called with a recorded message that said the creepiest thing....UPDATE: New msg
At least they're locking all entries to the school.

I've never understood why schools don't do that any way. Buzz people in or whatever but keep the doors locked during school hours.
 Quoting: Debauchery


This would be impossible to do at our child's school. There is a street that separates the two halves. One side elementary the other side high school. The campus is open on 3 sides and anyone could have easy access. There do have a few people who patrol the campus but it's still easy access with such a large area for kindergarten through to 12 grade.

Here - Christmas vacation began on the 14th so kids are now out of school until the 6th.
 Quoting: Alexander


That's great..that your kids will be out of school.

The 21st is the last day for both of mine and then winter break begins.

Our schools are always looking for parents to come and help out, thought maybe I could volunteer that day. Probably isn't necessary but better to be safe than sorry, right?
 Quoting: Debauchery


My little boy's last day is the 21st too. He said "Mom, I know the world is sposed to end next Friday but can we please go Christmas shopping because I want to get a bunch of stuff still." I smiled at him and hugged him so tight and just laughed to myself.
SMILE...you're not as stupid as they think you are!

Maybe the Mayan doomsday stuff was thrown in because they believe it will bring the wackos out?
 Quoting: Debauchery


The narrative is very simple and people should see it by now. Like Operation Blackjack (which coincidentally means 21. Did I hear someone say 21st of December?) said, homegrown terrorists and doomsday cultists were to blame for the FF nuke attacks [link to i46.tinypic.com]

Isn't the shooter or mum some form of survivalist? Do you see the connection?

So the only thing I believe missing now is some earth changing phenomenon, natural disaster around this date or perhaps a fear based media hype for that narrative to gain momentum. The media will simply say that the unusual events or hype about this date have driven people to the extremes.

Both my daughter's school in Virginia (she's a teacher) and the schools at which I volunteer in Maryland have locked doors, buzzers, positive video ID. This was put in place right after 9/11.

But as to the original post, it would seem that the message of fear has been propagated far and wide. People are closing up their hearts in a time when they should be opening them: to God, to each other. Isolation is now the norm.

We desperately need to re-think something things -- some deep things -- as soon as possible.
 Quoting: Life and Love


Locked doors don't stop God. You can pray silently in a locked-up school with armed guards all over the place. But it might stop some nutcase going in to harm the people.

We don't need to rethink the extra need for security this week.

Having done that, we are free to pay attention to other things with our minds at ease. Isn't the electoral college meeting tomorrow? Do everything to stop them confirming a fraudulent election result for an unqualified candidate.

Yea my wife is an elementary teacher here in Idaho and her school is wide open, they could change that but with the glass doors it's kind of an exercise in futility......if I was a principle though I would be strapped everyday or at the very least have a firearm at my disposal at all times.

Re: My kid's school district just called with a recorded message that said the creepiest thing....UPDATE: New msg
I got a similar message from our school district here in Ohio, but just about the shooting and extra precautions. My 8 year old wanted to know all the kids names, go through each of their pictures, learn about them...I indulged him and sat here with him and cried reading about each child who lost their lives.

He's been scared to sleep by himself the last two nights, scared to walk to the bathroom by himself, scared to go to school, worried that the same thing can happen at his school or in our home...

My knee jerk reaction is just to pull the kids out of school and never let them leave my sight again, lol, but, that's not very logical. I've been telling all of them to be extra aware of their surroundings, that people may do things this week that they wouldn't do otherwise.

I've instructed my kids to NOT be fish in a barrel at school. If their school ever does experience something like this shooting, to RUN as fast as they can run. Jump out a window, and run to the nearest house with a car in the driveway.

I never thought in a million years I'd have to discuss these things with my kids.

I would feel much better if there were armed guards at every entrance of their buildings...Ugh...Never thought I'd say that either...

Re: My kid's school district just called with a recorded message that said the creepiest thing....UPDATE: New msg
Don't let your kids talk to the counselors.

They are pushing the "there are people available to talk" so heavily so they can ask your kids invasive questions about their home life.

They're using this as an opportunity to tell kids they should be scared of Mommy and Daddy if they have a gun in their house. They're using this to try and scope out if any kids have parents that don't keep their guns as securely as they should.

Every single time I've ever been to a counselor's office at school it ended up being a very thorough information collecting exercise. If that doesn't work, they'll start sending invasive assignments home that are meant to help the kids "deal with their grief."

Because crazy people think the world is going to end exactly on the 21st so why not go rob and shoot up places if its over that day anyways? Make sense.

What would be the point in robbing or shooting if it was over? You would think people would be with family, friends, or even out in the wilderness enjoying some last moment peace and meditation.

Great idea! Mine get out on Wednesday for Winter Break. They do need a sense of normalcy...absolutely! Can't just keep them indoors all this week, although I want to...Hopefully, mine have listened to what I've told them about this week...Be aware. Pay attention. Look, listen, observe.

There are lots of sick crazies out there who may feel they have nothing to lose this week and do things they wouldn't normally do...

Everyone be careful! Stay safe!

You were freaked out?! I was in Fresno standing on a second story balcony with friends smoking a cig before the game was to start, when the balcony shook so hard we almost fell over the railing, the first question in my mind was "Did SF just drop into the Pacific?"

i was 5 miles from the fault. my 2nd story apartment got destroyed. shook so hard i kept falling trying to get out of the building.
and the aftershocks.... holy crap.
 Quoting: Salt


I can only imagine, we went back in to check the tv and see if we could figure out the epicenter, and then we saw the chaos at the game on tv and it all came together. Our balcony was crappy so it exacerbated the shaking.
