USA: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School reopens following shooting tragedy

Students, staff, parents and hundreds of police officers from around the state and country arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday, for the school's official reopening, following a shooting which killed 17 students. «We have to try to come here to learn, but this week we're trying to be comfortable,» said Madison Geller, a Junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High... Еще School. «We just have to get back into the same routine of things.» Students are trying to return to normality, but that may be difficult with so many armed deputies. Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie said he supports having more armed law enforcement in schools, but is opposed to arming teachers. Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was murdered in the school shooting, said if his daughter were alive today, he'd want her in an armed school. «If I still had a kid alive, I'd take them to the school where there's guns so they're protected because we live in an evil world,» Pollack said. Classes will resume for the rest of the week on a modified half-day schedule to focus on emotional readiness and comfort before returning back to the regular curriculum schedule next week.
