Olivia Ellis – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- LRHS administration has established new safety protocols to keep Mustangs safe at school in the 2022-2023 school year.
Mustangs are now only allowed to enter school through either the bus/cafeteria entrance or by the front of the school.
Security cameras have been upgraded all around the campus and improved technology to monitor the hallways.
Security officials have a newly relocated office now in room 514, underwent tactical training over the summer and added new equipment at the beginning of the school year.
Guardian Louis Cruz said, “Having new cameras in place and extra guardian in place gives us more eyes and more boots on the ground and students should feel safer all-around campus.”
LRHS has an additional guardian to add to the current safety staff, Guardian Timothey Liffey.
“If something is happening, the guardians are going to go and make sure that the students are safe no matter what anyone says,” said Liffey.
Assistant principal Michael Staker said, “We are continuing to encourage students to use Fortify (a suspicious activity reporting tool that allows people to instantly relay information to appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials) and to please report any suspicious information that is posted online.”
