Transgender Student Barred from Seeking Shelter During School’s Active Shooter Drill 

A transgender student at a Virginia middle school was reportedly left alone during an active shooter drill at the school.

The student was forced to sit away in the gym from all the other student because staff could not figure out whether to put them in the boys or girls bathroom. Eventually, the student was told to sit in the locker room hallway for the remainder of the drill.

“The new superintendent has requested a review of all protocols and procedures to ensure that all children are treated with dignity and respect,” a spokesperson for the school stated. “We take such matters very seriously and they will be addressed. The welfare of all students is of the utmost importance for SCPS.”
