With all due respect, I would not remotely imagine any granting foundation willing to give you money to make your facility's windows bullet proof and the building wired for a possible calamity of the worst kind.
Most likely, you would be urged to move if you think your facility's placement is a danger.
There may be a one in a million chance for a school lock down, in my opinion. Were the chances for a shooting at that school so high as you imply, no parent would want their children attending.
It does not sound to me as being so bad that you are adjacent to a first-aid center. People going there have other serious issues on their minds, and it would be unlikely you will be bothered.
Look for grant money for carrying out your Mission, not looking for funds to make your art center a fortress.
Besides, even with bullet-proof windows, that's no relief if someone is actually out there with a gun. Relax, and think good art things.
