Scattered reports of school lockdowns in wake of school shooting

(AP) -

Teachers and parents across the country are wrestling with how best to quell children's fears about returning to school for the first time since the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Around the country, officials reported school lockdowns in response to threatening incidents on Monday.

In Florida, three Tampa-area schools were locked down after officials found a bullet on the floor of a school bus.

Lily Roswell weighed whether to take her 7-year-old daughter to a Miami elementary school on Monday morning, the first day of classes since the Connecticut elementary school massacre that left 20 children around her child's age dead.

But she says she finally determined a shooting could happen "in a movie theater, at the mall, anywhere."
