Three Steps To a More Secure Blind Brook District

The superintendent has detailed ways the district will increase its safety and security.

Following the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Ct., Blind Brook school district officials are planning three significant steps to further ensure the safety and security of their campuses.

Following a special board of education meeting on the topic of safety, which more than 125 people attended, Blind Brook superintendent William Stark detailed the steps in a press release to the community.

Blind Brook will have an increased police presence on Ponterio Ridge Street, middle and high school campuses until long term measures are put in place. School officials will contract a consultant to perform a safety and security audit. And, thirdly, the district will review existing security plans and ensure all procedures are strictly adhered to. 

"Raising the level of security is a complex process," Stark wrote. "It will require support from the community. That support includes participation of all consituencies including, the Board, employees, students and parents."

Stark asked the public to contact the district with any concerns and recommendations regarding safety.

If it took this horrendous event in Newtown to cause a review of "current" procedures and see to it they they are "strictly" adhered to, this is some sorry state of this District.
