La Grange, Western Springs schools reevaluate security
A day after 20 children and six adults were shot to death in December at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., Western Springs District 101 Superintendent Brian Barnhart sent an email to parents asking for suggestions on improving security at local schools.
This summer, entrances at three of the district’s four schools will be renovated to make it more difficult to enter, a project that will cost between $200,000 and $300,000, Barnhart estimated. Security cameras outside the schools soon will be linked to police and dispatch centers, an idea that came from a parent. And the district, like other schools, is considering additional changes as it aims to protect against a tragedy like the one that happened Dec. 14 in Newtown.
