Sherman School to upgrade security
Published 6:28 pm, Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Plans are moving ahead for security enhancements to Sherman School.
An appropriation of $75,000 was approved Feb. 15 in a town meeting for installing a security system at the school.
It is anticipated a portion of that amount would be reimbursed through a grant from the Connecticut Local Capital Improvement Program.
Camera and alarm systems will soon be installed. The exterior doors to the school are being changed to a card-swipe system for entry.
Glass doorways in the building may be reinforced. Plans are still being developed, with the Board
of Education and the town's
selectmen working with a
Sherman's resident trooper has increased his presence at the school since the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
