School safety drill sends students running for their lives

CHICAGO (WLS) – The sound of gunshots split the air last Friday at a Rockford-area high school sending students seeking shelter anywhere they could, including off-campus, to save their lives.

What the students didn’t know, was the shots they heard came from a capgun discharged by a disguised sheriff’s deputy in an elaborate school safety drill.

Orangeville Jr-Sr High School student Skylar Walters told NBC 13 WREX he was in gym class when he heard the shots and a man calling a fellow students name.

“Kids were just running everywhere and crying and hiding, ran off school grounds,” Walters told WREX. “I started praying to God and saying my last words.”

Walter’s mother, Nicole Fishburn, told WREX she received an automated text message from the school the day of the drill but was instructed not to tell her son about the exercise and not to answer her phone should he attempt to call her.

There is a few minute Video here where Student, Parent, and Administrator discuss “their side” of the story.

Interesting that this Public School has a yearly Tuition rate of $3500, but is still part of the Illinois Department of Education.

I wonder what they do with the $8,106 per year received to educate PS Students?

At this point, probably purchase “Cap Guns”, Police uniforms, and pay the salary of an additional PTSD Psychologist. “Special Students” who need additional counseling get an additional 15%.

Youtube is a wonderous thing.

On the ground reporting provides information very quickly, accurately and cleanly. In the case of Illinois SB 136, interesting terms from State Officials can be viewed. Here is one example.

Please pay careful attention at 3:30 forward where Senator Luechtefeld questions Bill Reynolds (Truant Officer) on why SB 136 is needed.

The general gist of the conversation for readers without access to video is the following:

Senator: So will you be going into the home of people even if they are doing a good job?

Truant Officer: Yes. They might need help. More
