Petitioning Alton School District #11

Install metal detectors in Alton High School

With the incident that just recently occured at Alton High where a child and a security guard were both stabbed..I think that this is more than enough reason to have this done. I was told by one of the Madison County security officers there that they just cant see everything that goes on or watch each individual child..this was in response to my complaint of a student threating to shoot my son.. They have over 2000 students to watch over so why not install the detectors to help them with keeping the school safe. I know that with all the fights, bomb threats and lock downs that school has I surely DO NOT feel safe having my child there. With the most recent shooting in Newtown maybe this will make them wake up and see that something like this could happen here....
