A year ago, an armed man entered Stockton Springs Elementary School and held a classroom of children hostage, according to police reports. Have schools responded appropriately to such threats, however rare? Does your local elementary school have a single point of entry that can be monitored by school staff? Do school staff insist that visitors to the building check in at the office?
How safe are our schools?
