School security tightened in Medway


Following recent incidents of school violence across the country, the Medway School Committee decided at their Oct.12 meeting to install remote-controlled locks on exterior doors of all schools.

According to School Committee chairwoman Susan Connolly, the new high school on Summer Street is the only school building with such a security system.

Once the new measures are installed at the town's other four facilities, all visitors will have to request entry to the building and be "buzzed in" by office personnel.
