On Facebook a couple months back a woman on my friends list found out that a teacher who was related to someone who was having additional security at their house for protection was also given a couple additional police officers at school for safety precautions. She kind of flipped out over this saying she wasn't told and would have taken her kids out of school for three days if she had known this. It was mentioned briefly on a letter to parents after it happened. I understand the desire to be informed, but that seems a bit over-protective to want to take your children out of school over that and flip out over it. Isn't it rather normal at schools to have certain periods where they have a couple extra security officers for protection given teachers are often public figures as well and certain situations happen that call for it? I thought maybe the school didn't alert everyone over it because it is rather mainstream.
