A-R school security
I find it ironic and coincidental that on June 7, the day after D-Day, the VND had an article “Quiet year for armed school guards.”
The story, which included the Apollo-Ridge School District, talked of how local districts with armed security or on-duty police officers in their schools didn't encounter any major problem.
But that same week, there was a security breach at Apollo-Ridge High School. A member of the local deer population entered the school and roamed the halls until it was captured. It was quietly escorted on a leash out of the building.
Nature has a funny way of showing us our faults. A-R got caught with its pants down — so let's pull them up and zip up all the openings.
The next time it may not be Bambi coming through the doors. It may be an armed intruder, like a Sandy Hook maniac or a Boston bomber.
Let's get this corrected before school begins in the fall. Let's make sure all openings are closed when not attended.
