Schools get tough on cell phone use


The assembly for ninth graders, who are temporarily housed at the former Central Elementary School on Ditson Place, and individual grade-level assemblies for fifth through eighth graders at the grammar schools, covered building security and reviewed emergency and lock down protocols.

Counselors and principals visited classrooms for kindergarteners, first, second, third and fourth graders to “take the pulse of the classroom” and talk individually to students with questions or fears, Scannell said.

Additional officers have been posted to the schools, supplementing each building’s full-time school resource officer, and patrols have been checking each building several times throughout the day, according to the daily police log.
