Kids going back to school in a pandemic are met with another trauma: Active shooter drills


Margaret Fram’s 5-year-old daughter already knows what to do if there is an active shooter at her school. She’s participated in six emergency drills this year. 

She did so from the comfort – or, at least, within the confines – of her New Jersey home. While the school has reopened for in-person classes, the family opted to stick with distance learning for the rest of the semester.

While discussions about school safety have been dominated by the coronavirus over the past year, the reopening of more schools and two recent mass shootings that killed 18 people are reminding parents of a threat that had momentarily receded from their list of fears: school massacres.
