Are our children safe in school?
SRO program at Lincoln Community High School works to
assure the safety of students and staff
As a parent, grandparent, guardian, or even young
person, it may be hard to fathom how that any child could willfully
take a gun to school and start shooting. With cold, calculating
malice, a child, that’s right a child, takes the lives of teachers
and classmates. There is no understanding how things like this can
happen. But we as parents, grandparents, guardians, and even young
people have to ask ourselves, can this happen here? Are there kids
in our schools with the ability to do such a terrible thing?
