Whoa! I just can't imagine what it must be like for parents these days. So much more to deal with than I had when my kids were in school. Bomb threats were the "thing" when I went to school but I don't think many people took them as serious bomb threats. We did have to all evacuate the building but that was more an annoyance than feeling like a real threat. Did Munchkin know this kid or was he just a chorus class acquaintance?
She knows him pretty well. They're all so close in the performing arts classes. The chorus director is especially shook up.
I keep hoping that maybe he had been abused and decided to fight back. That situation isn't good either, but it would be easier to wrap my head around.

So sad and so many lives affected by this.

So, there was a phone call from the high school early this morning, letting us know there will be an increased police presence on campus today due to an incident off campus involving a student.
Turns out that a student had killed his parents at some point last night. They do have the student in custody, but I cannot imagine what could have led to that outcome. The student is in the Munchkin's Chorus class. They're all shocked, but are okay and there was never any danger at the school.
......just dangit!!
So very sad.

At my youngest’s high school it was discovered last Thursday after classes ended that two students made credible threats directed at the high school. On Friday the two students were arrested before the start of the school day. We parents didn’t become aware of the threat until we received an email from the superintendent later on Friday. You’d think the school would let the parents know of the threat before we sent our kids off to school that day.
