Cleveland, Tenn.'s newest elementary school may be, structurally
speaking, one of the safest in the nation when it opens in 2015.
The school, still in the conceptual stage, will include a reinforced
safe room in each classroom. The closet-type rooms will lock from the
inside, providing protection from storms and intruders alike.
Both natural and manmade threats at schools weighed on the nation's
consciousness during the 2012-13 academic year, when 26 innocents were
gunned down in a Newtown, Conn., school and the bodies of seven children
were pulled out of an Oklahoma elementary school that took a direct hit
from an EF5 tornado.
