But either way, the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office is conducting school shooting training at Bellingham's Wade King Elementary today, preparing for the (sadly, not so) unimaginable.
According to the Herald:
The event is part of the Sheriff's Office's regularly scheduled, ongoing training program to practice responding to school shooting. It's not in response to any reports or threats at the school, according to the Sheriff's Office. Nor is it in response to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
The paper indicates that the training is running from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and that uniformed members of the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team will be involved.
No students will be on campus during the training, and signs are posted to alert community members of what's going down.
