Help me give my students the feeling of being safe if a dangerous situation were to occur on our campus.

My Students

My students are 4th-grade students at our elementary school. They are comprised of low economic status families, ranking our school as Title I. Additionally, I teach ESL, gifted/talented and special education students, all in the same environment. My goal is to accommodate all different types of learners to provide them with the best education I possibly can. Just two years ago our community was affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our school, in particular, took the hardest hit! We lost 12 classrooms. A tremendous amount of our school's supplies, materials, and resources were lost, but we prevailed!

My Project

The materials I have requested today will help me keep my students safe in the event of an active shooter situation. My school is a rural area which means a longer response time for 911. It was brought to my attention in training that many of the Sandy Hook students could have survived if they would have received the proper care in a timelier manner. Simply, if someone could have stopped the bleeding, many more students would have survived. So I am asking for a control bleeding kit to keep in my classroom. I am also asking for help purchasing a device that will help secure my classroom door. My door swings out and into the hall; this device slips over the return arm of the door and prevents it from opening.
