WATCH: Mom Prepares Kindergartener for School With Bulletproof Backpack and Active Shooter Drill

When it comes to buying back-to-school supplies, most parents are familiar with the usual necessities: a box of crayons, fresh markers, some notebooks, maybe some Kleenex.

But for one Oklahoma mom, a bulletproof backpack was also a back-to-school must for her kindergartener this year.

In a now-viral TikTok video, Cassie Walton shows her 5-year-old son Weston preparing for the start of school with a bulletproof Spiderman backpack. In the video, Cassie coaches her son through an active shooter situation.

Walton simulates a drill in which someone at school says over the intercom, “This is not a drill.”

“What do you do?” She asks.

Weston grabs his bulletproof backpack, then replies, “Get in the corner and be really quiet and still.”
