It's been a little over a month since a young man killed 14 students and three adults at a high school in Parkland, FL. Since then, school threats and shootings have  become a heightened topic of concern for parents.

On Tuesday, Bellevue Public Schools along with the Bellevue Police Department talked to parents at Bellevue West High School about school threats as part of a discussion meeting held each month on different teen issues. 

Vanessa Kumor has four kids in BPS. She was one of more than a dozen parents who attended the meeting. 

"It's a hot topic right now. I talk about it with my kids, they talk about it with me. I want to know what to be able to tell them. Unfortunately it's a reality of school right now," said Kumor. 

The meeting discussed the district's and law enforcement's protocols on how to prevent and respond to school threats as shootings.
