Thankfully, police arrived on scene moments later and were able to get the situation under control without anyone being harmed. Thanks to DIR-S, the teacher was able to stay in discrete and active communication with the principal. All other teachers were able to stay up to date on the situation without any major disruptions to their classes, other than ensuring that their students stay in the room. Moreover, being able to remain in real-time communication with DIR-S helped reaction times remain at a minimum, and everyone in the school was kept safe.
