The new reality can be seen a poster of a lockdown song that hangs in a kindergarten classroom.

As of Thursday morning, it had been shared more than 13,000 times, as people discussed measures that have to be taken to help protect children in the wake of school shootings across the country, including recent massacres in Santa Fe, Texas, and Florida.

The Somerville mother told The Boston Globe that she saw the "jarring" poster while touring a kindergarten in Somerville for her five-year-old daughter. "Lockdown lockdown it's all done, now it's time to have some fun", the rhyme, which parents noted was to the tune of "twinkle, twinkle", read.

Officials went on to say that lockdowns are jarring and students know how unnatural the experience is, the Post said.
