LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — New security measures are in place at McCutcheon and Harrison High Schools. This comes as a temporary solution after concerns were expressed following the Florida shooting.
For the past several years, the Tippecanoe School Corporation has been installing new systems that require visitors to be buzzed in. Entrances with security systems are part of planned renovations at both high schools.
For now, front entrances will be locked after the start of the school day and visitors will have to ring a buzzer to gain access from a staff member.
TSC Communications Coordinator, Sue Scott said she hopes revisiting the plan will ease people's minds.
"I think we're all very touched by what happened in Florida our students, our staff, our families so we want to do everything we can to make our students and families feel safe," said Scott.
All security renovations are expected to be complete within the next year or two.
