Not a matter of if, but when

RE: “Local schools heighten security” [Jan. 30]:

I am a teacher in a middle school, and we are training everyone to respond immediately to a lockdown signal, which means all kids get pulled into a room, doors are locked, lights turned out, and everyone made to remain quietly on the floor.

The local police and sheriff promise to be there within eight minutes to handle the intruder.

It is the only responsible thing to do to keep our kids safe. It's not a matter of if, but when.
