Busy day for schools around here. On Monday I got a notification from my Ring Doorbell app that there was a firearm involved incident a few miles from my house. I saw some news on social media that schools in that area were on lockdown. The school that my kids go to and that my wife works at was not included in the lockdown. The incident was resolved and school resumed normal operation the next day.
While working from home the next day, I got an robodial from the school district saying that there was a lockdown today. I thought they were a day late so I ignored it and hung up. It turns out that there was a crazy 18 year old named Sol Pais who was infatuated with the Columbine shootings made comments that got the FBI concerned she was going to do something, so when she flew from Miami to Denver and bought a shotgun after leaving the airport it prompted a manhunt. Schools in our district went on lockdown for the second time in a row.
At 1AM this morning I got a notification from the robodialer again that our district would be closed completely for students and faculty. That's 155 schools across the state. Another 100 or so closures were listed on our local news site, which includes whole districts and individual charter/secular schools.
So our kids are home this morning as well as my wife. About 15 minutes ago we got word at first that Sol Pais was captured and then headlines were updated to say she is dead but no other details are available at this time.
