USA children learn ‘lockdown rhyme’ at school

This should not be hanging in my soon-to-be-kindergartener's classroom.

And while it's extremely important to inform children on safety precautions, this poster of a lockdown song hanging in a kindergarten classroom will absolutely break your heart.

She added, "The school is doing exactly what they need to be doing, and I'm glad for it". When ask what that was, she said "in case a bad man comes to our school we have to help Mrs.M push her desk in front of the door, get in the closet, hold hands & be VERY quiet! Now it's time to have some fun".

A "jarring" nursery rhyme posted in a MA classroom to help prepare young children for a lockdown has gone viral.

Cohen saw the photo while she and Healey were touring the school, where their daughter will attend kindergarten next fall.

"These are the things they unfortunately have to do".

Social media users are calling the poster simply heartbreaking.

The song's title is hard to confirm, due to multiple versions of the Kids See Ghosts tracklist that have been floating around. The same track also samples Shirley Ann Lee's "Someday", which recently also made an appearance on ye track " Ghost Town".

In a statement, Superintendent Mary Skipper and city Mayor Joseph Curtatone applauded the teacher's creativity, but they lamented that lockdown drills have become as common as fire drills.

She did mention, however, that in light of recent events, she worries the song may be normalizing school shootings and that she wants to people to remain sensitive to the issue.

"To be shocked by it is important", Cohen told the Globe.

"Lockdown drills are necessary in this country because until stronger gun reform laws are enacted and the plague of gun violence eradicated, there must be systems in place to keep our schools and students safe", he said.

There have been 23 shootings in USA schools this year alone which have resulted in one or more deaths.

"Students in Somerville and across the country know how unnatural this is", a statement from the pair said. "Stay outraged. And if it gets somebody to do something - to give money to an organisation or to call their representatives - then great, I think that's important".

They agreed with Cohen's initial assessment of the circumstances, calling the need for lockdowns "jarring" for students, educators, and families.
