Henrico Schools To Add Metal Detectors Next Month
This comes after officials say that a loaded gun was found in a student’s backpack at Holman Middle School around 11 a.m. Friday morning after an anonymous was made.
In a lengthy statement to families Sunday night, Superintendent Dr. Amy Cashwell says “students should not have anxiety about going to school, and teachers should not have to worry about putting themselves in harm’s way to protect their students. Enough is enough.”
Also, in that statement, Dr. Cashwell announced that by mid-February, the division will begin testing metal detectors in multiple schools throughout the county. Trained staff will also use free-standing detectors, wands, and other weapon-detecting technology.
This is expected to impact the student arrival process, but Dr. Cashwell says officials are working to minimize delays.
