Pude: Safety, Security of Students, Staff is
'Number One Priority in BASD

In light of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, Bradford Area School District superintendent Katy Pude wants to assure the community that the safety and security of every student and staff member in the district is their number one priority.

In a letter to the community, she said although the district has safety plans and procedures in place they are continuing to examine ways to improve on the current protocol.

District administrators have meet with City of Bradford Police Chief Chris Lucco and School Resource Officer Butch Bartlett to examine existing procedures. As a result of the meeting, parents may be inconvenienced by having to sign-in when entering a school and wearing a visitor’s badge, but Pude said the new procedures are for the safety of students and staff.

Letters outlining the new procedures will be mailed to parents on Thursday.
