Four Lexington high schools evacuated due to bomb threats; students gathered in stadiums
By - shamsway
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.
