In light of the incident on Feb. 27, where one student brought a gun to school, students waited in a longer line than usual Thursday morning before school due to increased security. Assistant principal David Propst oversaw the checks. All students who entered into the cafeteria walked through a metal detector; some had their bags patted down. No metal detectors or faculty, however, were present for students who had their first periods in the gym or instructional suites. To hear students’ responses to the increased security, check out this video.
