We interrupt this joyous of all seasons for not one, but two bomb threats at my son's high school.
What the fire truck people?!!
The high school was shut down and searched yesterday by Central MA
and State Police Bomb squads.
The building was cleared but students were ordered to return to school with just themselves,
no bags, backpacks, purses...
We thought good thing that was resolved since there is a play tonight.
My son is behind the scenes tech guy working the lights and soundboard.
I was out for a sick day, trying to get over the typhoid my mother in law left in her
wake from her visit last weekend.
I took an afternoon nap, got up to shower and get ready to go to the play
and my oldest was home. He was supposed to be at school getting ready for the play.
No such luck, there was another bomb threat!
The High School was evacuated.
They bussed the high schoolers to the Intermediate School where my youngest was.
Then the Intermediate School was locked down.
All the kids had to stay in their rooms while bomb sniffing dogs searched their school also.
Should dinner time discussion with your 9 year old include having
his locker and school searched by bomb squads with dogs?
Now I live in a small town...no big city crime here. Just the usual small town stuff.
This is all days after Rachel's Challenge was presented at all of the schools
in our town and in the wake of another shooting at Virginia Tech.
Now we await for the rescheduling of the play and have our fingers crossed that whoever this really disturbed kid is, is found and helped before they really hurt someone.
I am convinced more and more that it
really does take a village.
