"Maybe parents would have wanted to get their kids out of the school, they felt that would be safest for them. Yet we had no idea," Diana Myers said.
"I was actually at the hospital with my grandpa and I just started crying. My dad was like "what's going on?" And I was like "Dad... this is real." You never think that's going to happen at your kid's school. Then when you get something like that it hits," Destiny Adams said.
"I walked right into that school after an email was sent out to all of us parents saying that all the exterior doors were going to be locked. I walked right in there and got my daughter. She wasn't escorted from building to building... that was a lie," Adams said.
The principal said he never believed students to be in immediate danger, but they will be re-evaluating safety measures.
"These are our kids. We try our best to protect them and we trust the school to do the same but no one told us anything was even going on. That's kind of upsetting," Myers said.
