OT-I just got the scariest phone call ever
 
I just had the ever living crap scared out of me. I got a phone call from the superintendent of the County schools out here saying that the school was on Lockdown. We come to find out that there was a man with a gun headed to the schools. He didn't say which school (we have 1 primary, 2 elementary's, a middle school and a high school all on the same property area). The police were able to detain him before he got to school property. I am still so scared that I am shaking even though I know that it is all ok now. I have one kid in the middle school, one in the elementary school and one in the primary school. From what I hear they were on lock down for about 40 minutes.

I'm so sorry. That is terrifying and everyone's worst nightmare now. I'm sooo happy they got him and hopefully it will turn out to be not as serious as it seemed.

Me too. My 6th grader isn't at school today because he has a tummy virus, so he texted me from my grandma's house. We live so close to the school that we can see the parking lot lights from the school at night. I was just as scared for them as I was for my kids in school today. I am really worried about how this is going to effect my 3rd grader. He is a very sensitive person and takes everything so seriously. He has been jumpy lately anyway for some reason. The dog sneezed while we were sitting on my bed last night and Logan jumped into my arms, lol. I am hoping that my kindergartener is just too young to understand what was going on. I know I will be hugging them all extra tight tonight when I get home from work.

OMG that is so scary!! I really don't want to start the gun debate! But come on! This is going on way too much these days! Glad they got him in time and everything is okay now. :hug:

That is scary. Was the guy actually taking a gun towards the school, like with the intention of using it or he just had a gun on his person?

Thank God everyone is OK! My kids' school went on lockdown last year because there was a criminal trying to escape police nearby (or something to that effect) but he wasn't trying to get into the school at all. I feel there should be armed guards or at the very least bullet proof doors for the schools.

From what I hear now it was a parent that wanted to pick their kid up from school but wasn't allowed to because of a custody order. they got mad and threatened to bring a gun out there and get their kid by any means necessary. He was detained before getting to the school though.

Wow so scary!!

Oh wow, what an idiot (excuse the name calling) but from my experience if there is a custody order saying you can't pick up your kid from school there is probably a reason for it. If you have a problem with it take it up with the court, why threaten something like that when you know the emotional state of our nation over that kind of issue right now.

That had to be terrifying!!! :hug: So glad the kids are okay.

I am so sick and tired of crazy people causing problems like thsi! Every time I hear of an incident of this nature, or that someone actually did something terrible in a school, I think harder and harder about homeschooling.
