The Fowler School district recently installed glass doors directly inside of the main entrance to the high school and moved the office closer to the entrance.

These projects were funded by a Legislature-approved safety grant that the district recently received.

“Securing the entrance has been a high priority for us, considering that we have several,” said Superintendent Alfred Lotrich.

Security also motivated the school to move the office closer to the entrance.

“It just looks like it was always meant to be set up this way,” said Lotrich. “All of the feedback I’ve received has been positive.”

Cameras were installed near every entrance for this same purpose.

Lotrich also said, “We have a minimum of three school years remaining in this building, depending on what happens in November. So we need to make this building safer while we’re still in it.”
