Following Friday's tragic events in Newtown, Conn., Mukwonago Area School District hired personnel to monitor entrances at two elementary schools this week, with a third locked down during the school day. Over Christmas break work will begin to install buzzer systems at the three schools to increase security within the buildings.
Section and Prairie View Elementary, along with Eagleville Charter School do not have clear views to the front entrances from the main office. At other MASD buildings, guests are funneled into or past the main office or a staff member monitoring the entrance. Personnel to monitor entrances at Section and Prairie View are in place this week, while Eagleville will be locked during the school day. Parents and guests need to knock or call to gain entrance to the charter school, according to MASD Superintendent Paul Strobel.
The district will continue to look at improving security in all buildings throughout the district. Watch the Mukwonago Chief for a complete story on MASD school security.
