Maplewood Richmond Heights schools are making slight changes, immediately, in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.
MRH Director of Communications Brian Adkisson outlined how the district is responding to the tragedy.
Reviewing (and modifying) our safety procedures within the District is an ongoing process that we do throughout the year. Incidents such as the tragic shooting in Connecticut on Friday makes those reviews take on even more importance.
Right now we are reviewing our existing policies and procedures with our staff and local police departments.
The one change we have made is locking the doors at the ECC a bit earlier than was previously done (all of our campuses have doors that are locked during the day and visitors must be buzzed in by office staff).
The safety of our students and staff has always been, and will always be, a top priority for the district.
