    As a grandparent of four children in Seattle schools, I am concerned about how unsafe they and the students in general are while in school due to the entry doors being left unlocked while classes are in session. This would allow any person intent on wanting to shoot students like at Sandy Hook to merely walk in and enter a class room and shoot. The school would have no warning until the shooting starts.
    In contention with this, is the fact that no where inside a classroom is there a place for students to hide in out of sight if there is a warning of an unauthorized entry. After a lockdown is called, students would not have a place in the classroom to hide out of sight of a shooter who looks into the classroom. He would have complete freedom to shoot and would not stop until police arrive minutes later , too late to help the students from the initial shooting. If these was a hiding place, the students could hide out of sight and the shooter would move on and this student would be alive.

    Is there anything your organization can do to alleviate this situation and save the lives of students?
