SCHOOLS: Safety first

Print Article

I took part in Active Shooter Training at one of our elementary schools Friday. It was provided by the Rathdrum Police Department and the Lakeland School District. I want to thank our forward-looking community for providing this class to the staff of our schools.

It was intense, and knowing that in the event (God forbid) that something were to happen, we’ll be able to save the majority of the students.

Your Lakeland teachers not only make sure your kids learn reading, writing and math, they are the only ones between your children and the mentally ill person who would harm them.

We are the last defense in today’s climate of “I want to be famous, and it’s all about me.” Remember, we put your children above ourselves in times of crisis. Be assured we are providing the education they need and the safety they deserve!
