"Because yesterday the protocol all went well," Huey said. "But in the future, we want to make sure that the little bumps we had, we don't even have little bumps [in the future].
Teachers and students at Christ the King early childhood center we're hiding behind locked doors last night, hoping that whatever chaos was happening outside, didn't come in.
"We were alerted that a situation happened in the neighborhood and so we took safety measures following our crisis management plan to make sure that the children were safe," Huey said.
After shooting Dustin McClelland at the 4300 block of 60th st, David Castanada led police to Christ the King where he was found dead, lying underneath a cross.
"We also have protocols for locking down the building and sheltering in place in the building," Huey said. "We went into a sheltered place in that we were aware that something was going on."
Center Director Katie Huey said the school stays open until six o'clock and that several parents were in the building along with children and teachers.
"I think what we learned from this is rather than doing a drill maybe once a year and talking about these larger issues once a year," Huey said. "We need to increase our drill time to do more practice."
Huey said there are a few things the school would like to change now that they have run through their plan-including using text messages to alert teachers faster.
"We are now looking into changing into how do we more with technology," Huey said. "And instant communication with teachers."
Huey said the school had a meeting today and will continue to add to their emergency plan.
