East Meadow School District highlights school safety amid mass shooting in Florida
March 08, 2018
Parents and students filled the auditorium of the East Meadow School District’s administrative building on Feb. 27 for a Board of Education meeting that addressed school safety in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
Attendees were invited to voice their concerns, and Erin Schmidt, a mother of two children in district schools, urged administrators to bolster security, pleading, through tears, “I don’t want to be the next news story.”
