Scully said that some deficiencies with outdoor lighting at the high school have already been addressed.
“For example, where students and families enter the common areas, such as through the library or cafeteria in the evening hours, and the rear entrance to the gym, we already installed a number of outdoor lights,” Scully said. “The next phase is to look at the main entrance to the high school and gymnasium, which at night isn’t that well lit. We know we need to increase the lighting there and we want to do it in a fashion that doesn’t become offensive to the neighbors.
“We very mindful of the fact that these are things that need to get done,” he said. “We are going to continue to move forward using our money prudently and wisely to make the school safe, secure and more accessible to the community.”
