Peters School District Receives Calls From Parents Following Newtown Tragedy
Administrators and staff reviewed safety procedures.
The Peters Township School District spoke to a number of parents Monday following the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Parents wanted to make sure security measures were in place, according to district spokesperson Shelly Belcher.
Schools are locked during school and visitors must go through a procedure to enter to the school.
Visitors must show their photo IDs and staff members wear ID badges.
"We take it very seriously," Belcher said.
"We also have a strong relationship with Peters police," Belcher said.
Belcher reminds parents to use the proper visitor procedure as many will be visiting the schools this week for holiday parties.
