  • Observers online said they believed the school’s decision to resume classes sent the wrong message.

A high school near Charlotte, North Carolina, where one student fatally shot another on Monday morning resumed classes hours after the shooting because it was the safest thing to do for its students, Tracy Russ, a representative of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district, told Business Insider in an email Monday.

“The decision was made after lockdown was released by law enforcement to help ensure the safety of students on campus until dismissal and transportation arrangements could be made with families,” Russ explained.
