The incident at Tamaques School in which a man was arrested in the parking lot after school with a gun and ammunition (when children were in the building at a time when the front door is typically unlocked) is a wake-up call to the Westfield, NJ community. 

All Westfield, NJ school doors must be locked AT ALL TIMES. Keeping the school doors locked during the day is a no-brainer, and so why isn't that the case after school? There is currently nothing to stop someone from entering the school and doing harm after regular school hours.  

Please sign this petition to urge the Westfield Board of Education to review the after-hours security policies and keep our school doors locked at all times. There is nothing more important than our children's safety. 

Thank you.
