Tomahawk School Board Gets Recap on Safety Upgrades
Published on 08/17/2018 under News The Tomahawk School District, like so many across the state and country, focused on safety upgrades over the summer. At Tuesday's School Board meeting Administrator Terry Reynolds and Buildings and Grounds Supervisor Mike Debels gave the board a brief update on some of those changes. One of the most visible changes for guests will be a buzz in system in the main entrances during school hours.Those main entrances will also be treated with shatter resistant film. Debels says they hope to apply the film on additional glass surfaces around campus. The cost for the film is approximately $15 per square surface foot. Reynolds also says they will be limiting the number of access points for the students throughout the school day as well. Debels also mention a few other upgrades:They have upgraded the locks in the elementary classrooms which will allow the teachers to lock the rooms from the inside and prevent intruders from entering. They are in the process of adding additional camera to minimize the number of "dark spaces" not currently covered.They have also installed some additional keyless entry points in the interior of the building. The teachers will also become students with a number of planned staff training exercises from reporting threats training to classroom safety intruder training. Reynolds appeared optimistic that an agreement on a School Resource Officer would be reached with the district, the city, and the police department. He suggested that could be done and in place by October. Reynolds also indicated that the district would submit a request for a second round of funding made available by the state. Earlier this month the school received a $60,000 grant from the first phase of funding.
