BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
East Baton Rouge School District leaders want parents to know how much they care about the safety of their students.
"We want the public to know that we take every precaution humanly possible to keep our kids safe, to keep our babies safe. We understand the awesome responsibility parents place in our hands when they release their loved ones to us to educate. Constantly we're doing walk-through's, all of our schools really have metal detectors, and we're doing random searches to try to keep our babies safe," said Associate Superintendent Herman Brister.
Dr. Brister also says the best information comes from students and the community. If someone knows of anything out of the ordinary going on in school, they're encouraged to tell a teacher or law enforcement officer.
He says I Care counselors will be dispatched to EBR schools on Monday morning to talk with students and parents about any concerns they may have.
"Certainly we're going to have some youngsters that may be grieving. Our parents should be concerned at this point. Any information that we get over the weekend and throughout the school year to try to prevent this from happening we certainly try to act upon it. I would encourage them to hold their babies tight over the weekend, life is very precious," said Brister.
