Parkland Shooting Affects PGCPS Students

The school shooting that took place in Parkland, Florida affects our fellow PGCPS students as well as students all across the United States. This event makes students, teachers, and all other people who regularly go into a school building afraid to show up let alone get their work done. Events like this show school administration that more precautionary measures need to be taken to protect the well being of the school, its students, staff, and the general public. Lockdown drills also need to be taken more seriously as students may never know when the drill will become a reality. 17 people were killed and another 14 people were wounded in the shooting that happened in Parkland, Florida. This could happen in any school all across the United States. Let’s initiate change for the better!
