A Hudson Valley school district is going above and beyond to keep their students and staff safe.

In the wake of last week’s mass shootings, many people are wondering what we can do to prevent more tragedies like this from happening.  While politicians and lobbyists continue to argue instead of making any real changes, one local school district is taking the matter into their own hands.

Remo Security Doors claims that their bullet resistant metal doors can turn an ordinary classroom into a safe room. The company says that by replacing a school’s old, unsafe classroom doors with their security doors, teachers can keep out any potential intruder. The company’s website says that forcing children into a dark corner during mandatory lockdown drills can have lifelong affects on their mental health. Also, some security experts question if the drills actually do anything to keep children safer.
