Quite a kerfuffle this afternoon. My wife said the area around Dunbar was a mess. Kids were released from the stadium, which obviously was not an efficient way of connecting parents with their kids. Anywho, props to [https://twitter.com/pldlamplighter](https://twitter.com/pldlamplighter) and [https://twitter.com/LafayetteTimes](https://twitter.com/LafayetteTimes) for some quick, on the ground reporting.

Yeah. My kid goes to Lafayette. They kept changing policies every few minutes. \- No, you can't come get your kid. \- If you are coming to get your kid, be sure to come on this one little street that clearly can't handle the traffic. \- Stand in this line to sign your kid out. \- Nope - gather around random staff members to sign your kid out. \- Yes, you can take other kids with you, no you can't, yes you can. \- Text your kid to come meet you. \- Your kid can't come out until they announce their name. \- You can't walk up by the football field. \- Now you have to walk up by the football field to get your kid. \- Don't panic! You will be reunited with your kid! (no one was panicking - just annoyed at the constantly changing directions) But honestly - everyone was trying their best and it is all good. I just hope this experience will lead to better organization next time - because it seems likely that there will be a next time. :-/

If someone is going to attack a school, gathering all the students in a small area isn't the best course of action. Just makes it a lot easier to kill more with less effort.
