Parents' would never send their child to a school that is not safe. Luckily, parents in Batavia do not have to fear for their child's life everyday while they attend school. Unfortunately, Batavia health & safety laws have been tested before. In 2009, a child was diagnosed with the swine flu. However, the city of Batavia was calm and precise of cleaning the schools and preparing all classes for a healthy environment. Further cases in Batavia were nonexistent, thanks to board of Batavia. Meanwhile, in 2015, multiple Batavia schools were put into lockdown after an armed man caused a scene in a nearby neighborhood. Thankfully, the principal notified all staff and students immediately. The teachers admirably handled the event in the calmest manner. Safety within the school, therefore was never a concern. I never would have known danger was so close .
