What would you do about rumors of a planned shooting at your kids school?
On Monday I received this email from the principal of my kid's high school which is in a suburb of Chicago:

There is a rumor that circulated through Twitter about a safety concern at our assembly on Friday. We have investigated the rumor thoroughly, have found the source of the Twitter message, and have involved the Police from the very start of our investigation. At this time, we do not feel there is a threat to the school or our students, but we continue to investigate any and all reports. The Police Department has agreed to be a presence at the school, both in plain clothes and in uniform, throughout the week and at our assembly. We will continue to investigate any and all rumors, and will send a message to our students later this afternoon about the importance of keeping us informed of any threats to the school. (Edited to remove school name and town name)

I didn't think too much about it, but when my kids told my wife about it, she decided that our boys should stay home. What would you do if you were in my shoes?

I'm pretty sure after the incident in CT, that at least 2 of the teachers I know at my child's school, are probably packing heat.

There are rumors of a plannned shooting in my kids' school district for tomorrow. We now have cops at the doors to all of the schools. I had already planned on probably keeping them home tomorrow anyway though.

Our kids school did say something creepy like "we hope we never have to use the plans we have prepared."

Keep them home!

Have school do a locker, car & backpack search.

Prosecute for all weapons, drugs found.

That way the kids will be so pissed peer pressure will make sure no kids ever start false rummors again.

My kids are grown now, things like that didn't happen then but there was one time there were rumors about a huge gang fight planned the next day.

I kept them home from school. There was a riot that day but was quickly stopped when police showed up.

There is something to be said about rumors and threats and I would not take the chance.

Tons of schools have been closed and not just because of threats of violence....But also because end-of-the-world hysteria. My childrens' school isn't one of them, but I kept them home nonetheless. Family says I'm overeacting.
But my thoughts are that the lunatics will be out in full force and there's no such thing as being over-cautious when it comes to my kids.

Don't even hesitate to keep your kids home from school. Better to be safe than sorry these days. I'm sure many of the other parents will do the same. With all the hype about 12/21/12, the nuts may come out of the woodwork - best to keep your children safe and especially what happened in Connecticut, God bless them all and their families.

Re: What would you do about rumors of a planned shooting at your kids school?
I homeschooled last year but this year I put my kids in a public school and they really love it so even though I'd like to homeschool them, I feel it would be unfair to them. If there is another major school shooting I may just decide to homeschool them regardless. The only issue I would have is not being able to work outside the home so homeschooling would mean we'd have a lot less money and it's already tight.

My kids' school is closed tomorrow. I'm sure this is Mayan doom related. They have never, in my memory, had an early release on Thurs with no school on Friday.
