The tragic incident that took place in Sandy Hook is an unfortunate reminder that even our youngest children are not safe at school. Although this does not guarantee their safety, it is a necessary step in deterring and possibly preventing such a tragedy in the future. To turn a blind eye or to say " it won't happen here" is irresponsible and places our children at risk. We believe that our children deserve to be protected. Having a police officer in every school along with other safety procedures should be placed in effect immediately.
