"A Music Teacher Herded the Children Into a Closet Filled With Instruments. To Occupy Their Hands, She Gave Them Lollipops"

The children hid on the floor, amid their puffy winter jackets. One girl cried, and Mrs. Wexler held her in her lap.

In an office, someone had flipped on the main control for the intercom, and disturbing sounds were coming from it.

Mrs. Wexler, who spent 20 years in corporate finance before turning to teaching, began to sing holiday songs in a whisper.

The children whispered along.

"Jingle Bells." "Silent Night." "I Have a Little Dreidel."

They did not pause when they heard shots or screams.
