May I ask the Question as to why Ayers wasnt evacuated to? My child goes there and if there was a bomb found in the other school and was activated....my daughter along with other students would be gone. I know it as a threat but theres always the what if.....I'm glad it was handles but I feel all three school should have evacuated....

You've been watching too much TV DawnNic16. A bomb big enough to blow up three school buildings would not fit in the girls bathroom where the note said it was. Bombs that big are in trucks. The school did a fine and realistic job assessing the threat.

it doesn't matter how big or small the bomb was...why evacuate two schools and not the thrird? It makes no sense and it really doesn't matter how big or small the bomb is sometimes...its whats in them that count.....yes it may have only been a threat. Thats not what I'm saying but why is one building so much different than another ? If something is going to happen it would happen....No one knows. I'm not saying they did a bad job or anything I'm just saying why were they not evacuated to? You must not have kids to worry about their safety....I am Concerned about MY child and feel that if 2 school were evacuated then the third should have been too.....They can't say one school is more prominent than the other is what I'm saying.....
