7 Tips on How to Stay Safe during a School Shooting to Share with Your Kids ...


Teaching my kids how to stay safe during a school shooting is something I would have never imagined before they were born. I guess I was naive in thinking that school is the safest place for kids, despite living just minutes from Columbine High School. As it happens more often, Iโ€™ve decided thatโ€™s it imperative to give my kids these vital tips for how to stay safe during a school shooting.
