The Blairsville-Saltsburg School District has put a date on when they will make a decision concerning school security upgrades. The school board last night once again heard from a concerned parent about school security. A number of security-related items were discussed, including the installation and staffing of metal detectors, and the cost of having an armed police officer. After having several discussions over the last few months, the board set April 17th as the date on which a final decision will be made.
In other news, the board had their second reading and approved a revised version of their school dress and grooming policy, which prohibit excessively baggy pants and clothes that would conceal items or pose a safety hazard. Information will be passed along to students and parents very soon.
