Just hours after the Newtown, CT school shooting on Friday that left 28 people dead, including 20 children, Lakeville Schools Superintendent Dr. Lisa Snyder wrote an email to parents.
In it, she offered condolences and sympathy to those affected, and addressed concerns folks may have over Lakeville's own security policies.
Snyder was candid in the letter, telling parents she tasked building principals to review their security plans and procedures during the week and send recommendations for improvement.
To that end, Snyder has also decided to take administrative action. Within the next two weeks, Lakeville schools will form a task force to make school security recommendations for all schools that the School Board can consider. Those findings are expected within six weeks.
Snyder told Sun Thisweek that the group will use the information building principals were tasked with developing, as well as other information, and then provide recommendations to the board within six weeks.
Some members of the task force may include parents, the report said.
Lakeville Patch will follow the story.
