Everything is ready to go for another school year at Spring Lake Park High School.
The desks are arranged, the flag is up, and the note that tells authorities the condition of students in the classroom if there’s a lockdown is in a handy spot.
Things are different in American schools from when we went to class.
The red tag indicates someone inside the classroom needs help.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
