'We're Going to Protect Our Kids': Sign at Texas School Warns Teachers May Be Armed
A sign outside a Texas school warns that teachers may be armed and they will do whatever it takes to protect the students.
Last week, the sign was placed by the entrance to Medina Independent School District, which has 303 students between an elementary school and a high school.
“Attention,” the sign reads. "Please be aware that the staff at Medina ISD may be armed and will use whatever force is necessary to protect our students."
The school's board of trustees discussed the matter for a year, deciding that the sign was necessary to deter all kinds of violence, not just would-be school shooters.
On "Happening Now" today, superintendent Penny White said they wanted to be proactive and make it clear to everyone that they take the safety of students - and faculty and staff - very seriously.
"We wanted for people to know that we're going to protect our kids," White said. "I think it would make someone stop and think twice if they had a violent act in mind."
