    Have you considered homeschooling? I was homeschooled as a kid and I know there is alot of opinions about it but think about the safety.

    This is what I have told BOTH my daughters, one a senior in HS, the other is in college.
    A chair and window are your friend.
    I don't care if you are on the second floor or higher, usually there are bushes there to break your fall.
    Hopefully there won't be too many shards of glass to come into contact with when you land.
    Whatever happens to them would most likely be a better alternative than being shot.
    Who gives a damn what the school "plan" is.
    I worry about my 3rd. grader, for he would most likely NOT be able to facilitate throwing a chair out the window, but he was told that if he can open the window and fit out, to bail and run.
    I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

    IMHO trying to train young children to respond to an armed intruder in a school would be counterproductive and disrupt the learning process. Parents and school authorities would be better off concentrating on better means to ensure no armed whack-job ever gets past the front door: All exterior doors should be locked from the outside and equipped with crash-bars in case of fire. Security personnel should be stationed at the front door before and after school to protect students as they enter or exit the building. Metal detectors should be part of the entrance equipment with hand scanners for the security people. If possible, the school should be placed on the route of police patrol units with frequent and random presence. Some sort of visual emergency signal, perhaps a blue light, should be fixed in a highly visible location that could be activated like a fire alarm from several locations. Schools, like malls and other public places are extremely difficult to defend without disrupting their purpose. As a retired teacher of 35 yrs. I don't favor arming teachers or students for a plethora of reasons, mainly along the lines of armed security guards in banks. I do think an armed police resource officer is a good idea if the school or district can afford it.

    Lockdowns are OK if they are trying to lock the BG OUT. Not so much for an internal threat. I agree with the RUN concept but I would say RUN IN A ZIG ZAG FASHION IF YOU ARE BEING TARGETED. Then there's these (watch the video!):

    That's pretty much what I told my daughter, unless there's a sniper or someone outside the people who remain inside are sitting ducks. I also told her if another "threat" occurs to call me and I'll pick her up wherever needed, the school made no effort to notify parents until long after when they sent an e-mail. When I was a kid before cell phones, e mail and texting we had this high tech communication called a phone chain ...

What advice would you give to a teenager in school today in terms of what to do if an active shooter comes to their school?
    Go to school where our divine leaders two princesses go--they have a whole cadre of armed guards there. Don't ya just luv hypocrisy. Do as I say not as I do--goes for the all the inmates running the asylum previously known as the USA. Sorry to hijack.

    Throw things at shooter and rush him during a reload. Must approach from more than one direction.

    My son had a shooter in his high school and the shooting hit the local news radio within minutes while I was working at home and listening. We panicked as parents and our knees got weak trying to begin mobilizing to respond. At that very moment the garage door began opening and he said he heard a pop and couldn't determine if a firecracker or whatever, so he walked instantly out of the closest exit to the car and left. This son always seemed to have street smarts from the time he could walk. Put me in the "Run Forest Run " category, LOL.

    While I agree that this is a bit og hypocrisy; there are more than just O's kids there. Ambassodors kids as well as other national and international leaders kids attend. Yes O's kids of body guards as have every other POTUS kid. While we are at it O has body guards; wonder if he will have them give up the MP 5's, Uzis and M16's when the ban comes?

    I know; share whatever it is I'm smoking!

    As a teenage in public school your chances of being killed by a shooter are slim to none. You however will face being killed by a drunk driver, killed while driving drunk or in a car full of drunk teens. If not that you will be killed in some other car car crash. If you manage to avoid those your good to go for a bit . You have a much more likely chance of AIDS than you do being shot.
    So turn off the liberal news become a conservative and live a long happy life.

    If flight is not a possibility, turn the lights out, lock the door, remain beside it and then, after discharging it in his face, try to mold the fire extinguisher to the shape of the shooter's head as he enters the room.

    Botach tactical has a bullet resistant panel for the back of backpacks. It might be something worth considering. At 90 after shipping its a thought.
