My facebook is flooded by 'concerned' kids and parents in various school districts around St. Louis. A 'threat' to a school in their district has been made for Friday. Yes, it's the same exact story in three school districts for the same day. Kids (note: the only reason I see their comments is because I coached some of them!) are saying they don't want to go to school because of it...parents are entertaining the idea of keeping them home.
Is this just a STL thing or is it happening in your neck of the woods? Would you keep your kids home? If Davin was old enough, I'd send him.
Why would you introduce your child to a situation like that
What is the situation, exactly? A 'threat' to a school in the district? When I got to work I heard about another district with the same story.
If you're concerned about kids going to school because of a threat, why would you ever send your kids to school? The threat of violence is there every day. Why would a Friday be any different? If someone did indeed threaten four different districts, why wouldn't they just 'attack' today? Or why not yesterday?
I can't (and won't) live my life in fear.

If kids go to public schools in St Louis they are probably already aware of fear.
I guess my point is we all live out lives by some sort of operational risk management.
I don't believe the risk to have increased. Security and awareness certainly have. If anything, the risk may have decreased.
Been several bomb threats at schools in my area in the past couple of weeks.
When I was in high school it seemed like we had a bomb threat every other week. Send your kids to school and they will search everybody and then lock it down. Kids think its cool cause they think it will get them out of school.
had a lock down at bedford county schools yesterday. Bomb threat i believe. It's an evil world and not going to get better anytime soon.
A boy was arrested in Maury County for saying he was going to do the same thing that happened earlier this week.
Seems like there's always someone there trying to pull something like that — or at least make an empty threat about it. I remember having a couple bomb threats in my first year or two of high school.
Oh, good ol' Maury County ...

I didn't hear much last night or this morning about any of it. I wonder if it 'concern' blew over.
Some of the area was without power, maybe they just didn't have the ability to complain!
My roommates in college were from Marshall Co. - sounds like par for the course!
