This letter is not meant to be a letter of criticism, nor a letter to provoke fright. It is meant to be a heads up, a bit of information that says, sadly, we need to take a bit more caution in protecting our kids here in B.G., especially in view of what has recently happened in Conn. and seems to be happening in many small towns. Towns just like B.G.
I'm a florist. A great deal of our business is delivering happiness, flowers/plants/balloons that make someone smile, makes someone's day better!
We have & I have personally delivered to our local schools. In those cases, we normally check in at the office during school hours and leave the plant/flowers at the office. However, occasionally there have been times (very early mornings prior to the start of school) when we have accessed the school, through a side door, (a student or someone else has opened the door for us, seeing us with a bouquet of flowers) and enabled us to go to the teachers room and leave the delivery on the teachers desk. We generally will let the office know that we have been there~ but~ how many others have been able to do the same, totally undetected?
B.G. Schools are fierce in protecting our students and I know that the safety of our children is a top priority for them. But, if I can innocently gain access, who else can?
We need additional measures for security in our schools to protect our young ones. How sad that is!
The anguish that the parents in Conn. are facing is just horrific. God be with them and with us in taking every measure we can to protect our children!
