Thank God we were all evacuated from the school to city hall. There parents were redirected to pickup their children. All students were wonderful and so well behaved. My 31 2nd graders made me feel so proud. We were actually the first class out and they follow directions and were so calm. I never knew what it felt like to be responsible for so many students in that situation and all I could think of was get them away from the school.

We received the all clear and staff, teachers and administrators returned to the school for an update and debriefing. The person that made the call was arrested so that makes us feel better. Thank you all for you prayers and comments.
Time to relax and get ready for tomorrow.

    So glad the person responsible was identified. I am sure the kids were picking up on cues from you as you reacted in a calm manner.

    So very glad to hear you all are safe! And I am sure you were so proud! Such innocent children doing what they needed to do...stay calm! When my husband taught middle school he was so good with the kids! He was fun and loud and crazy, but he knew how to instill in the kids the importance of knowing what to do and how important it is to do it right! He explained the tough situations that could the doors to the classrooms would be closed and locked and you needed to get where you belonged and once that door closed it could not be opened! He had kids ask him what he would do if someone got into the room To harm them and he said with such genuine sincerity "this big man can move If he has to and I'd come up and over this desk and I will intend to take him out as fast and hard as I can"! I know he meant every word and I am sure the kids knew, too!
    I hope for you to have a restful night and a safe and better day tomorrow! I am glad the person was arrested!
