  • Superintendent Says Students Are Armed with Rocks In Case of a School Shooting | WNEP.com

After undergoing a day of training, around 500 teachers in Millcreek Township, in the north-western part of the state, were issued 16-inch batons to defend themselves and their students in the event of an attack.

"The advocacy demonstrated at the Capitol over the last eight days has produced admirable and historical results", said Shawnee superintendent April Grace, adding that her school district would reopen Thursday.

When we talked to the superintendent last Wednesday, though, he clearly told us that's not the intended objective, saying, "In fact, we bought these for all of our teachers. not that we expect teachers to use this as a weapon, but it's pretty symbolic too. we want it to be symbolic that we have one consistent reminder that you may have to, unfortunately, you may have to fight".

Ann Mason, a 30- year veteran history teacher from Cajon Valley Union School District, was chosen by Launder to participate in the Dynamic Learning Project and become the coach for Hillsdale.

"We want to be there for them", she said.

District superintendent William Hall admitted that the wooden bats, which will be kept locked away inside each classroom, were primarily "symbolic". According to the Post, the district is also implementing a dozen other safety initiatives including building a concrete wall, installing security film on its windows, and constructing secured entrances at five of its schools over the summer.

The school district is also surveying parents to see how they feel about arming qualified staffers with guns.

He stressed that introducing bats to classrooms should not be misconstrued as arming teachers, but is instead about "providing our rooms with one consistent tool to be utilized in an emergency".

They delivered enough Wednesday to feed the 80 elementary school-age children at South Lindsay Baptist Church, a temporary home for a Boys & Girls Club that normally meets at nearby Cesar Chavez Elementary School in a poor neighborhood on the city's south side.

This emphasis on putting up a fight prompted another Pennsylvania school district to arm its teachers and students with 5-gallon buckets of river stones to use as a last resort against a shooter.

One survey response mentioned bats in case teachers or students need to fight back, Hall said. "I think that, in trying to place all the blame on the federal government, we place no blame on ourselves", he said.

"As a school board member, I don't think our minds are set up in any particular direction, and that's exactly why we're having this conversation tonight", school board member Jonathan Kassa said.

The Cubs will be without All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo , who was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday. Tyler Chatwood will make his second start of the season, aiming for his first win as a member of the Cubs.

"Her son seems "indifferent" to the bats, she said, Though he really doesn't understand how a mini-bat is going to protect him, his teacher, his peers in a classroom if someone is actively shooting at him".
