Active shooter drills are the new norm in many schools—a sad reality that teachers and children are facing up to nationwide.

Lynn Thompson, lead teacher at a care center in Phoenix, practises the drill with the three-year-olds under her care every day.

“It’s a sad thing to do, but that’s what it is,” she explained to Fox 10.

“I have them get used to it because if some don’t come, the days they did come they are used to it,” she added.

In the news report above, Thompson practises the drill, which includes ushering her students into a closet or bathroom after making the room dark.
