  • People should not be hunting around any school. What would of happened if they “missed” their target and hit a child instead? That’s really scary. My children attend Moton. The way the front office attendants handled the situation yesterday was very unprofessional. When my Husband called the first time, whoever answered the phone, they were shocked that we already knew about the lockdown. And when I called back to see if it was lifted, the lady was laughing on the phone. Seriously? What’s so funny about a dangerous situation like that?! Also, as soon as there were reports of an armed man with a shotgun behind the school and they immediately went into lockdown, that robo call should have went out right then and there. It’s sad that most of us parents had to find out through Facebook, yes FACEBOOK, that our children’s school was on lockdown. And to top it off we didn’t receive a call until about 10 mins after the lockdown was released. Very unprofessional in my eyes.

    • at my job we got the call as it happened for a variety of reasons plus consider the numerous numbers that have to be dialed. its not like they make one auto call like its a mass txt. calls going out arent instant.. and you ever see these lock down calls. parents immediately flood to the school. can you imagine if it was an active shooter and law enforcement trying to secure the situation with panic and and frantic parents running all over. maybe you are super calm and collective but having a large flood of anxious scared people added to the scene isnt safe. I heard the teachers locked doors had kids hide and get down on the ground until law enforcement cleared the property. I know its nerve racking but the officers and staff took charge. I know times are different but when I first moved down here I went to Hernando Christian Academy right across the street, we had people hunting in the thick dense woods, you could hear gun shots often. Every so often on class switch you would see hunters with firearms tracking through the area and again concerned parent person, I know this is complex but a facebook post is faster than making thousands of phone calls. Just try to do the math.

      • Well mr. Food for thought we really know you’re lying now because you had already graduated when Hernando Christian Academy was first established. Just keep continuing to make yourself sound like an idiot, the idiot that you are.

        • what are you talking about? At no point did I state the year I I suggest you learn how to read. Hernando Christian Academy was formed in 1981. Its apparent school failed you or you failed school or both.

          • I wasn’t going to respond due to most of your post being so asinine. I am well aware of when HCA began.  I also have  detailed information and had close dealings with purchase of the property the school is currently located on. I know for a fact that you did not go to school there but please continue acting like you know everything and have done everything.
