Children clutching onto each other as they are hustled out of an elementary school. Parents weeping together in a school parking lot, police cars and ambulances flashing behind them. Police brandishing machine guns racing to a school. While the images from Friday's school shooting in Newtown, Conn., will haunt many, it is children - those who attend elementary schools much like the one where 20 students and six adults were killed - who may be the most profoundly affected, experts say. "Children are going to be shaken by this because it was at a school, a place that is supposed to be safe and comforting," said Dr. Patrick Kelly, a psychiatrist at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

A Holabird Middle School student was disciplined after an inoperable starter pistol was found in his locker Wednesday, Baltimore County schools officials said. The Dundalk school sent a letter home with students about the discovery of the gun, and an investigation involving county police indicated that the student did not plan to threaten or hurt anyone, schools spokesman Charles Herndon said. A starter pistol shoots blank shells or caps and is typically used at sporting events. "Possession of such a device is still a serious offense, however, and the school has taken appropriate disciplinary action," the letter signed by Principal Julie Dellone states.

Perry Hall High School will maintain a heightened police presence until its principal determines that the campus is ready to return to normal, in the aftermath of a cafeteria shooting in which one student critically injured another on the first day of school. Two days after the incident, schools spokesman Charles Herndon said county officials are “debriefing and evaluating” but have not decided on whether to permanently beef up security or student counseling. “Right now, our attention primarily has been focused on the day-to-day recovery from this incident,” he said.

Perry Hall High School is more than 20 miles from Catonsville High, where Principal Deborah Bittner announced Monday, Aug. 27, on the school intercom, "There's been a tragic situation ...

There, a male student was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being shot by a fellow student with a shotgun during the first lunch period of the school year, according to county police.

Breaking from the tradition of beginning the school year with the city's Blue Ribbon recipients and highest performers, Baltimore schools CEO Andrés Alonso personally welcomed back students and staff who will take part in radical transformations at schools that have struggled with academics. Alonso said he decided to visit schools this year that have "all of the ingredients to be a great school, but their outcomes haven't shown it. " It was a decision in line with the unusual start to the school year, with 77,000 students returning from summer vacation two days late — the first time in recent memory that opening day has been delayed — because of power outages caused by Hurricane Irene.

First, we had the ongoing concern in Baltimore County Public Schools over the ethics of the Articulated Instruction Module grading system. Then, more recently, we have seen objection to the signage at Ruxton Ridge/West Towson Elementary School as being completely inappropriate to the historical character of the community. As if these two events weren't enough to blacken the eye of the BCPS administration, two more developments have arisen within the last week that make one wonder who is making what decisions, and with what accountability, on issues great and small at Greenwood.

In a blue-collar neighborhood in southwest Baltimore County, Lansdowne High School has become a refuge for some students, a place where parents say the faculty works extraordinarily hard to make personal connections so the teens will stay in school and graduate. Student achievement is up, and teacher turnover is down. The 84 percent graduation rate is the highest it has been in a decade, and growing numbers of students are in Advanced Placement classes. But now, many parents and students fear that a countywide plan to reduce teaching positions could hit Lansdowne hard.
