School board asks for staff security suggestions

Monday night was the first meeting of the Fredericksburg School Board since the events in Newtown, Conn.

School Board member Janan Holmes made the following statement at the end of the meeting.

“The board wanted to say this is our first School Board meeting since the tragic events in Newtown, Conn. and we would like to thank our school staff and our local police department for working collaboratively for the continuing efforts to keep our students and our schools safe. We would like to ask our school staff at our February meeting for recommendations to continue to keep our schools safe, including whether we should have a full-time resource officer at Walker-Grant.”
