School’s in and safety is on the hearts and minds of not only the parents but the entire community.
The best thing we can do, is unite together and pray for the safety of the students, faculty and staff. We had a time of prayer on Sunday, my students and I. One of them said, “you know they make bullet proof backpacks now?” It made my heart sad. Years ago we would have never dreamed such a thing would ever become necessary.
School shootings frequently headline the news nowadays. I don’t know where the blame lies, all I know is, we have got to protect our children at any cost. I am grateful to members of law enforcement like Gary Clepper.
Clepper, the Waldron School District’s School Resource Officer, takes the safety and well-being of his kids to heart. He spent the entire summer preparing for day one. In addition to his active shooter training, he comes dressed daily in his spiritual armor!
To all the school districts in our area, we are praying you have a safe and successful school year!
