The past year has been a scary one for America. Many shootings have happened, and many people have lost their lives because of gun violence. After the shooting at Newtown, schools across the country have started to either create new safety protocols or reinforce ones that have already been instated, and Heritage is not an exception.
Ms. Stacey Riendeau, Principal, and Mrs. Janet Sedivy, Assistant Principal who is also in charge of safety, believe that there are many steps that can be taken to protect Heritage and prevent violent incidents from happening.
It’s hard to believe all of the violence that has occurred over the past year. Many people have been killed in tragic shootings around the United States. Many people are calling for reformed gun laws, while others are vouching for more focus on helping people with mental illnesses, and I believe that at this point in time there is not a sole answer to how America can prevent more shootings. I do believe that there are actions that can be taken to help prevent things this atrocious from becoming such a prevalent aspect of our society.
