(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Students, parents, and staff arriving at Lawrenceburg High School Friday morning will notice some tight security.
Lawrenceburg Schools Superintendent Karl Galey tells Eagle 99.3 there have been rumors regarding student safety, but none of those reports have been substantiated after thorough investigation. That didn’t stop some fearful parents from holding their children out of school Thursday.
“We in no way have found any reason to suspect any danger, but want to take the extra steps to make all feel safer,” Galey said.
Regardless, the school is taking precautions by placing extra security at the high school Friday. Only the cafeteria and swimming pool entrances will be open as police set up metal detectors. Students are asked not to bring book bags to the high school.
Parents of high school students were notified of the measures in a mass phone call that went out around 6:00 p.m. Thursday.
Galey said the district wants to take extra steps to help make everybody feel safer in the wake of what occurred in Connecticut last week.
