|Jannetty conducts Campus Safety Training|
As a parent there is nothing more precious to me than my children. I would do anything and everything I could to safeguard them.
Times have definitely changed from when I was a student. Columbine forever changed our reality when it comes to school safety. Since then, school violence has become all too prevalent. We are a little more than a year removed from the horrific school shooting in Newtown, and more recently, there was a school shooting in New Mexico. In Connecticut, several colleges have gone into lockdown in the past year due to reported threats on campus. All of these incidents have left people wondering what could be done to stop this from happening again.
I don’t think we can totally prevent school shootings, but I do think there are steps we can take to ensure they are less likely to occur.
