    Health & Safety: I am very glad that my Children attaned a high school where an armed police officer is present at the school at all times. I have asked my daughter how she feels about having an armed officer in the building. Without hesitation she answered "I love it!". She then went on to explain how upset she gets everytime she hears of a school shotting, and believes that these shootings could have been prevented and/or lives have been saved, if a police officer was already there.

    Health & Safety: I believe it is good. Fortunately I have not had to know first hand. Last year we did have some threats and I did not like that we were not informed from officials. I would like to make that decision regarding my child and their safety, not have the principal.
