Uniform safety precautions for all Fredericksburg City Public Schools

I am writing this petition for all students who attend Lafayette Upper Elementary and James Monroe High School located in the Fredericksburg , VA city school district. We are all aware of the recent and tragic school shootings in our nation’s Public schools and as a result, a uniform security plan is needed to protect the students  in our school district.Visitors should not be allowed into either school building without security measures in place. Currently there is an “ open door “ policy at both Lafayette Upper Elementary and James Monroe High school. Hugh Mercer Elementary and Walker Grant middle school ( also city schools) have implemented security measures in the following way: visitors must be “buzzed” into these school buildings by the office as the front door of the building remains locked at all times. I propose that Lafayette Upper Elementary and James Monroe High school adopt this same policy for the safety of students and staff. I also believe that metal detectors should be placed in the entrance way of every school after the visitor is allowed into the building. James Monroe high school recently dealt with a student ,from another high school, brandishing a gun at a basketball game in the school building. The world has changed and we must be proactive, immediately creating a safe environment for all of our students.
