Local administrators saddened by Newtown tragedy

(Continued)

Somerset —

“I just made sure they were aware, were aware that parents might be calling with concerns, that they were ready,” he said. “They’ve been carrying on with business as usual.”
Randolph said there were no reports of students needing counseling, but “if there are, we will give kids what they needs.”
Walker said that he brought his own family here to Pulaski County to escape some of things he saw working as an educator in the more urban Nashville area, where violence was always a threat looming over daily school life — but safety is never guaranteed.
“One of my schools (in Nashville) had gang members, and lockdowns because there had been a robbery at the bank across the park,” he said. “One of the reasons I brought my child to Science Hill is that it’s a safer environment — but you can never be careful enough.”
