Columbine: Is it worth traumatizing more than half a million students PLUS their families to catch one person? – the new normal? – insanity?

Districts have announced that classes will resume Thursday, but students were already home when police told the public there was no longer a threat to the community. More than half a million students and their families were impacted by all of the closures, according to numbers from the CDE; 443,000 of them attend schools in the eight largest, metro area districts.

The school closures came in the middle of the night amid credible threats against Denver area schools. 18-year-old Sol Pais was being sought by law enforcement before she was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
