WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- Students at Harrison High School are being told to speak up and speak out if they notice strange behavior in school.
School staff members are also prepared to spot the signs of potential problems before a mass shooting takes place.
Harrison High School Principal, Cory Marshall, tells me he had a few students asking questions today about their school's safety regulations.
This morning, Marshall made an announcement to the school to recognize the seventeen people gunned down yesterday in Florida.
He says students play a key role in spotting suspicious activity in schools.
Everyone is advised to speak up if they see or hear something that doesn't feel right.
Faculty members are sworn under law to protect a student's identity if something is reported.
Marshall says although that is true, the confidentiality depends on the severity of the report.
"Depending on obviously what the situation is, I mean we may involve our school counselors with that student or staff member it may be more of a disciplinary administrative scenario, maybe all of those pieces, but that's how we would go forward." Marshall said.
Harrison conducts active shooter drills every year, involving students and faculty members.
Anyone without a school I.D. is not permitted in the building without checking in at the front office.
