W.F. Burns Middle School principal Princella Holley suggested stockpiling “cans of food such as corn and peas in classrooms” so students could grab them and “hurl” them at school attackers as a “last resort.”

W.F. Burns Middle School is in Chambers County, Alabama.

Holley sent a letter home on January 9 asking each student to bring one can of food to school for this purpose.

According to the AP, Holley wrote, “We realize at first this may seem odd; however, it is a practice that would catch an intruder off guard.” She believes “the canned food item could stun the intruder or even knock him out until the police arrive.”
