  •  After columbine (7+ / 0-)

    this was about when I was in 4th/5th grade or so.

    The district made a new policy about school gates being open in response to columbine.

    What once was a school that had gates open during instructional hours now had those gates closed.

    And only one set of gates will open near the front office to let children in and out.
    Teachers have gate duty to keep the unwelcome pedophiles and what not out.

    For exits and entries from the school during instructional hours, all must go to the front office. Momma comes pick you up at the office when you need to go to the orthodontist. She used to go to your classroom. Momma drops your lunch off at the office instead now (I had a good mom).

    They do this unarmed, of course. It didn't cost anymore to do it than just sending notices out.

    For you, open campuses might be normal. Beyond my first 4 or 5 years of schooling, they were always closed.

    Why hello there reality, how are you doing?
