Jayme Schubering will never forget the moment she heard about the shooting in Connecticut. She immediately thought about her little brother.
"It makes you really scared, it also makes you hope that something like that would never happen to them," said Schubering.
Schubering is a junior at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School.
She said she thinks her school is safe but said these events can happen anywhere.
"You just remember the kids that are scared to go back to school, the kids that can't go back to school," said Schubering.
Something school leaders said they are already addressing.
"I think that every administrator in America probably after that happened on Friday is saying let's review our security and what we do here if something like that would happen," said Administrator David Beringer.
But administrators aren't the only ones talking about it.
"It's kind of crazy when you have to be buzzed in or all of the security glass and all that," said Schubering.
School leaders at the high school felt it was important to keep the conversation open with students.
"For us to just pray for those families, to me that's very therapeutic for our students to be able to address that right away and to be able to talk to each other about it, also to be able to talk to teachers about it," said Beringer.
Teachers in the school said it's something they hope to help students work through.
"We feel comfortable, there's a little bit of an edge now, I think people aren't feeling as comfortable as they were," said Jamie Wehrs.
As schools here in Wisconsin and around the nation cope and move forward.
