In light of recent events, I would urge everyone who has a child in daycare or school to speak with the principal or director with regards to what their emergency plan is. Both DH and I work for a police department, and he is meeting with the director of our girls' daycare to go over the "lets hope hell freezes over first" plan. Unfortunately, this is the new reality, and copy cats are a dime a dozen. For instance, at DDs' daycare, which is in a temple, there is already security in place because, well, its a temple, and always under threat, sadly. The director is to the point that she wants to hire armed security guards. I know most daycares don't need that level of protection, but there still needs to be a plan in place, should the worst ever happen. I know that I feel safer knowing DDs' daycare is taking measures to reduce the risk, and that DH is a part of it. It won't hurt you to have a meeting to find out what they plan to do, and if they aren't already thinking about it, maybe it will light a fire under their butts to do so. I pray that this never happens again, but lets be ready if it does.
