Did you know that all Janesville schools are in complete lockdown?

I checked with my daughter who teaches at one of our schools. I know because I have visited her school. Here is how the security works: You go up to a post that has a button on it; the staff can see you from the front door.

They ask what you want, and you answer. They make the decision. If it’s yes, they push a button, and the door opens. We do not need guns in our school. We need to keep the people who carry guns outside.

Bless Janesville schools for how they handle this threat of school shootings in a sensible way.
