School safety

I love the Opt Ed section of the paper. I believe we all need to write at least one letter on something we’re passionate about in our lifetime. In saying that, I applaud this reader

Our students deserve and need to feel safe at school so they can learn. As committees discuss ways to make this a reality, I’ve got a request: Listen to the students, ask them about ways that they feel safe! Include them in planning groups.

I’m a retired certificated school nurse, 27 years in this position. Loved it, did my best, and I miss hanging around students and learning from them.

While committees talk about how much it costs for added safety, how about some simple, inexpensive ways to start?

Interior classroom door locks must be installed and window covers added. Turning off lights, locking doors, students sitting on the floor, quietly, may save lives.
