With the new school year around the corner, students and parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland are learning that some security measures previously discussed, like metal detectors, will not be implemented.
When school starts next week, new hardware in 34 portables will not allow classroom doors to be opened from the outside.
Metal detectors that students and parents were counting on, however, will no longer be installed -- at least at this time.
Those who had hoped for the metal detectors said they are upset that they won’t have this additional security at school.
According to a letter sent out to students, the district will instead have a workshop to discuss the metal detectors on Aug. 14.
