Also, since "no weapons" polices for schools usually only cover employees and students, maybe you could find some permit-holding ex-military type with good situational awareness to visit you a lot...
Back on topic...do what you gotta do Rollo. Push comes to shove it's better to be alive and jobless than dead and having a job. Kinda hard to get to work in a coffin.
That said...a person making statements to the effect of going to get their gun and coming back to shoot everyone isn't something to be taken lightly. It's quite possible that person would have been on the floor under my boot before they made it out the door.

"Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the **** out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."
What you mean is that you went to get a Ruger LCP over lunch with the intention of only carrying it where law and policy allow, and that you then promptly lost the gun in a tragic boating accident.
Rollo: is it possible to become a auxiliary Leo in your area, that would permit you to carry a gun in most instances... here a lot of Drs are auxiliary Sheriffs deputies. You have a very good reason to become an auxiliary LEO working in a school environment and I would think that most Sheriff Departments or regular police would love to have a learned man as an auxiliary.
As a retired vocational ed. teacher of nearly 35 years in the same school district, I remember our police councilor telling me that the kind of threat you alluded to is considered to be a verbal assault and subject to the same response as a physical assault on a teacher in a school situation, arrest and criminal prosecution.
The idea that a school is a "no gun zone" or a "drug free zone" is as ludicrous as the concept "a time out" or gun control. Even educators and administrators should be able to understand that criminals don't obey laws and likely can't read posted signs.
Just another example of today's "do gooder" mentality of those who watch reality shows on TV and believe they actually bear any resemblance to reality. I believe the pendulum is slowly swinging back and I just hope I live long enough to see Americans take back their country.
You might want to print a few of Oleg Volk's posters "A single shot could have stopped the rampages at Virginia Tech and University of Alabama"
or print out and post the quote from the Cincinnati prosecutor that I have in my sig.
Screw the polite written letter to the school administration. I would be calling the police immediately if it happened within my earshot and giving them the name of the student and address if I had it. If the school refuses to arm their security then call the police (anonymously if necessary). After a couple of times having the police show up on campus with the media you might be able to get them to change their policy to avoid media issues.
From a payphone or a $20 prepay cellphone bought with cash, (i'm at such and such campus and jane doe just threatened to get her gun come back and kill all the "******" on campus) hang up and walk away.
Never underestimate having a phone you can toss and not worry about.
To those that paid for my freedom,
I WILL NEVER FORGET.
As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.
I say, good on you for taking the necessary steps to protect yourself.
Next--are all of these threats properly documented? Is there process to report these actions? Can you forward a letter/memo documenting these events to the administration? I would recommend the student's explusion, first. Then a restraining order (personal info to be retrieved from the Bursar's office)--prohibiting this person from coming near you, your house, or place of work.
Keep a record.
If nothing happens, send a copy of your letters (and responses) to the governing body of the school. After that, hit the press...send them everything. Put pressure on the school to do something more than bury their head in the sand. Metal detectors do not work...people shooting back at BGs make them stop.
