Security Upgrades Greet Park County Students
Written by wendycorr on August 27, 2018
School will begin in Park County School District 6 tomorrow, and security upgrades have been taking place across the district.
Those upgrades include entry doors that are now locked electronically, and are fitted with security cameras. Superintendent Ray Shulte says that when people come to the schools now, there are a few extra security procedures that will have to be followed.
Additionally, all the classroom doors in the district – between 300 and 400 of them – have been fitted with door handles that can now be locked from the inside.
Shulte adds that an additional safety upgrade was made to the middle school cafeteria floor, which has been tiered with steps and ramps since its construction. However, he says that there have been several incidents in which people miss the steps and have been injured, so this summer the floor was filled in and is now level.
Shulte says that the funding for the security and other facility upgrades were built into last year’s budget, to the tune of about a million dollars, part of which came from the State of Wyoming.
