Our desks in TX were built to protect against nuclear bombs and tornados.

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving we had a real lockdown. I had hall duty at the time. I was told by the principal that there were 4 intruders. I then found out the 4 were students that graduated last year and were walking around to see their old teachers. The problem was that a student let them in a locked side door. I was the one that found them, and took them to the office. The principal got on the PA and announced to the school that anyone letting someone into the building through any entrance would be charged with a crime. A little overboard.

Lucky I grabbed my jacket, the kids didn't have theirs I felt sorry for them.


You work at Lakehurst? About 35 years ago my uncle worked there and thanks to him I got a bit of a tour. I thought it was fantastic.

Anyway yes of course you have different drills for different scenarios, to practice the official proper response.

Anybody else ever have a bedbug drill?

You have to get up from your desk and stand out of the way, so as not to disturb the bedbug-sniffing dog when he sniffs your work area (yes, at least once it was Roscoe).

I love the 21st Century.

Yes, depending on where the district needs me I can work Lakehurst 4 days a week or not go there for weeks at a time.

Geez... When y'all are done with all of those, is there a "Get back to work" drill?




Those who forget the pasta are condemned to reheat it.

Not in the high school in Lakehurst that I sometimes work at. It's a Preforming Arts Academy. Song, dance, musical instruments, audio recording. It's like a mini Hollywood Studio.
