School Excitement Abounds

Jono's report card was all A's this period! We are very proud of him because of all the hard work he has been doing. His reading has improved a great deal in the last few months, and it seems to be helping all his grades. We are very happy for him.

D did well too, as usual, but he had an extra surprise at school today. An intruder was reported to be in the school, and school officials responded by initiating "lockdown mode"! All the doors were locked, including the classrooms. Lots of police appeared, parking haphazardly on the grass as if to communicate emergency. Some were armed assault rifles!

It happened just before school was to be dismissed, so all the parents were just arriving to pick up there kids. The buses were sent away as some kind of precaution. All the worried mamas chattered on their cell phones and with one another, trying to deduce the reason for the commotion. No intruder was found and school was dismissed about 20 minutes later than normal.
