    As a P-O grad, in my time at the high school and even the old junior high, we only had two major threats in six years. One at the junior high that was taken care of quickly, and included the superintendent making a statement to the students and staff. High school was similar, but included a walk-out of practically 70-75 percent of the students. Now we’ve had three in the same amount of days. This is getting very ridiculous, and frankly shows that the students are now purposely trying to get out of school, and have no care of how they do it. Shows a lack of respect for elders, their fellow students, and frankly a lack of respect for themselves.
