SPRING, TX (KTVI) – After one student died in a stabbing incident last week, one Texas school has created new safety procedures.
Students of Spring High School returned Monday, but had to adjust to the new rules. Fox 26 in Houston reported there is a new bag policy, only allowing clear backpacks, large clear Ziploc-type bags, and purses no larger than a loaf of bread in the school. Any bag brought inside is eligible to be searched.
Other rules include only entering the school from the main entrance and the back of the school by the band hall. Metal detectors will be usedand handheld wands will check students as they enter as security is increased from the Spring ISD police and local law enforcement agencies.
Joshua Broussard was a student at Spring High School who was the victim of the school stabbing. At his funeral, a fight broke out outside the Spring Baptist church and at least eight gun shots were heard. As an attempt to help students, the school is offering trained crisis counselors to talk to.
