From the mouths of babes (#sol18 Day 4/31)

First and second graders discussing last week’s evacuation drill:

  • Why do we have to leave?
  • Are we in trouble?
  • Why do I have to leave my backpack?
  • Does somebody have a gun?
  • Is it because there’s a skunk in the school?
  • How will my mom find me?
  • Don’t worry about your backpack. You are the most important thing that needs to get on the bus.
  • What about my toy? It’s in my backpack.
  • Somebody in Florida had a gun at a school.
  • But we don’t live in Florida.
  • Your mom will follow the green cloud from the skunk. That’s how she’ll find the bus.

  1. The skunk! Thank goodness for the comic relief of kiddos. Hopefully the skunk distracted some of the more scared ones as well as me. Love the effectiveness of a list for sending your message here… I think I might have to try that.

  2. Whichever little friend said, “Your mom will follow the green cloud from the skunk. That’s how she’ll find the bus,” is going to be fine in life. That is a seriously practical outlook given the available information…though perhaps 2nd grade will work on evaluating the credibility of sources.

    1. Ha! Yes, he totally will. Our previous drills (lockout, lockdown) were introduced by the possibilities of bears being in/around the school, so I can see how these guys made the leap to a skunk causing an all-school evacuation. Wild living up here on the mesa!
