With heightened security and trauma counselors on hand, Perry Hall High School will restart its school year Tuesday, the day after a student shot in the cafeteria was left in critical condition and another student was taken into custody as the suspected gunman. The shooting took place on the first day of classes Monday as several hundred students were in the cafeteria, where the sound of gunfire initially seemed like just another piece of the aural landscape. Students said it sounded like the pop of air that escapes when a bag of chips is opened, or the clap of a door slamming shut.

Returning to school a little shaken, some students walked in clusters behind their parents, while others went arm-in-arm. A few even took their parents' hands, as though they needed the same reassurance they had received in elementary school. At the front flagpole, the band kids, the football players and the chorus members melded together to pray for both the "sweet and kind" victim and the alleged assailant in the shooting at Perry Hall High School. Students came back Tuesday searching for ways to continue to heal a community they say has been drawn closer by the shooting inside their school.

A Perry Hall High School student's father struck his daughter's teacher with a baseball bat after the family found "several dozen" text messages between the male instructor and 15-year-old girl, police said. Police said the incident happened after the teacher showed up at the girl's family's home. Authorities did not identify the 42-year-old male teacher or the father. Neither has been charged with a crime. The 15-year-old girl's family called police after finding the messages, which police said "described an emotional relationship that seemed inappropriate for a teacher and student.

After an emotional day of testimony, Robert W. Gladden Jr., the 15-year-old charged in the Perry Hall High School cafeteria shooting, was sentenced Monday to 35 years in prison. Baltimore County Circuit Judge Robert E. Cahill Jr. went beyond state sentencing guidelines to put Gladden away until he is at least 50 years old, citing continued fear in Perry Hall along with a national concern for school safety that has grown stronger since the Newtown, Conn. school massacre. Kathleen Watkins, a school administrator, told the court that the school is still working to get past the shooting that injured Daniel Borowy, a 17-year-old special needs student, on the first day of school.

He was a total principal.

The Perry Hall High School student shot on the first day of school has improved to fair condition, according to a spokesman for Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Daniel Borowy, 17, had been listed in critical condition since Aug. 27, when he was shot in the back in the school cafeteria. He underwent multiple surgeries to treat his injuries. A Baltimore County grand jury indicted student Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. earlier this week on multiple charges including attempted murder, first-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

A year and a half into the tenure of the superintendent they hired for his communication skills, Baltimore County school board members probably did not expect such an uproar. Protesters rang cowbells, blew horns and chanted in the cold night air outside a recent board meeting while inside the drab administration building frustration and emotion poured out as one speaker after another criticized decisions made by Superintendent Dallas Dance. School board meetings this winter have been filled with expressions of discontent from those who don't believe their point of view has been considered.

When students return to Perry Hall High School for the first day of school Aug. 27, they will find new safety measures in place, as well as an opportunity to get psychological counseling. "We know the anxiety is going to go up," said Principal George A. Roberts on Thursday. The school has applied for, and received, a federal grant to help students, staff and faculty who may have emotional needs as they enter the building nearly a year to the day after a student opened fire in the cafeteria, seriously injuring another student.

Teacher training in an Arkansas high school this summer doesn't include just books ... it also includes guns. The Clarksville School District, which is just northwest of Little Rock, is holding training for teachers inside the high school to help them learn how to carry a weapon and respond to a school shooting, like the Newtown shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead in Connecticut last December. An Associated Press story says that a little known Arkansas law allows for armed security guards to be on school campuses.

As a high school teacher who has experienced the horror of a school shooting first hand, I take exception to Susan Reimer 's column about Nancy Lanza, the mother of the Newtown, Conn., school gunman ("Nancy Lanza, Newtown's forgotten victim," Dec. 23). While Ms. Lanza was indeed an undeserving victim of her son's rampage, she hasn't been vilified unjustly. Ms. Lanza was not an irresponsible parent because her son suffered from mental illness; she was an irresponsible gun owner because her unstable son was able to gain access to her arsenal of assault weapons with 30-round clips.
