“band-aid on a gunshot wound”: uvalde parents fearful as kids go back to school after shooting

Global News published this video item, entitled ““Band-Aid on a gunshot wound”: Uvalde parents fearful as kids go back to school after shooting” – below is their description.

Students in Uvalde, Texas, returned to classes on Tuesday for the first time since a gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School, killing 19 students and two teachers in May. Students who formerly attended Robb Elementary, which is now permanently closed, have been reassigned to three different elementary schools.

At Dalton Elementary School, police officers were on site, with the school surrounded by security fencing as children were dropped off by buses and walked to their classrooms.

Last week, parents of the children expressed a range of fears, anxieties and hopes last week as they prepared to send their children back to school. Many said they were unsure whether they were putting their children in harm’s way by sending them off to school.

“They just keep trying to put Band-Aids on a gunshot wound,” said Brett Cross, uncle of 10-year-old victim Uziyah Garcia. “If they would just act on half the things they talk about, it might make us feel better.”
