VIDEO: New security measures coming to Albany High School
Beginning next week, students at Albany High School will have to adhere to the new safety measures put in place. They will now pass through metal detectors before entering the school.
Students will be required to empty their pockets into a plastic bag, have their backpacks open and ready for inspection and enter through one of two designated entrances. Parents have received a letter, detailing the new protocol.
"We have spent some time developing a detailed plan and really the plan is to keep our students safe and also make sure we are not interrupting or disrupting the school day," said Albany High School Superintendent Dr. Eva Joseph.
The permanent metal detectors are being added in response to the several violent fights since the beginning of the school year. School security officers are currently using a wand to search students.
