Editorial: When students face threat, parents need to know


Headmaster Mary Anderson said the school is constantly evaluating its safety protocols.

“We continually evaluate events and situations and we regularly enhance our safety and communication procedures as a result,” she said. “The incident was managed according to our well-defined safety protocol, however, each situation has unique circumstances which are individually assessed. That assessment and other safety considerations are confidential in the interests of protecting our students.”

Here is an opportunity to learn something.

From the school’s point of view, once the threat has been neutralized or found to be unsubstantiated, the incident is over. But in the minds of parents, the incident is not over until they’ve been told what happened so that they can decide whether their children were in any danger that day at school.
