Adding security isn’t what caught my eye. This admission was:
[Lakeland Joint School District Assistant Superintendent Lisa] Sexton says the district’s top priority will be Athol Elementary, but the guard could also assist at Twin Lakes or Garwood elementaries if necessary.
She says it has typically taken law enforcement longer to respond to Athol compared to all the other schools in the district.
Sexton says it took 22 minutes to respond to one recent 911 call made at Athol Elementary.
For the sake of security, why would you admit that publicly in the news? Very unwise telling the bad guys “our most insecure school is Athol, and if something goes down, you have 22 minutes to raise hell”.
