B'ville: Students' safety a priority during difficult situation

According to Dangle, there were approximately 1,400 students at Baker that day. Out of that number, three students reported to the nurse's office after the incident. When the school nurse followed up that same evening, two of the students had not sought medical attention, while the remaining student was brought to urgent care. Specific information about the medical care sought was not available.

After the incident, Dangle said the staff and district officials met to review the incident and discuss how to better prepare in the future. She added that she and other district administrators planned to take an emergency incident command training course, which had already been scheduled in early September for an upcoming professional development day.

While talking to others about the incident, I heard some who agreed there was little that could be done in that situation while others were calling for Dangle's resignation. Upon hearing that absurd request, a friend chimed in saying "you couldn't pay me enough to do [Dangle's] job." Considering the people out there so willing to criticize and condemn decisions made during difficult circumstances, I couldn't agree more.
