I made it through the Thursday night Board Meeting. No one spoke about the shootings at Virginia Tech, and no one exclaimed at how unsafe our own little High School is or might be.
I had really been dreading this meeting--preparing myself for a group of parents to cry, "It could happen here!"
Because mostly? It won't. I mean, you still have to be prepared and have "action plans" in place so that staff knows what to do. But in the grand scheme of the universe, the likelihood that a shooter is showing up on our campus is pretty small.
Feeling a great sense of relief. Sometimes Public Comment creates a little too much angst.
