School safety concerns addressed

Superintendent receives ‘superior’ marks for first year

Riverside Board of Education members began their Tuesday evening session with a moment of silence to remember all of the individuals who perished in the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last week.

Attendees and board members wiped away a few tears, and then began the meeting, starting with addressing school safety plans.

Parent Hollie Bryant asked members what’s being done to keep her children safe while they are in the school building. She said following Friday’s tragedy several states away, her children told her Monday morning that they were fearful of going to school.

“My children were scared to go to school yesterday, and I was very close to letting them stay home,” she said.

“However, when I pulled up to drop them off at school yesterday, I was very pleased to see a police presence here.

“I know there is a training coming up here, but I want to know what you’re doing right now and I want to know what’s in place.”
