On Friday, Dec. 14, an armed gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Conn. and killed 26 people, including 20 first-graders.
Since then, faculty and staff at area schools have taken a hard look at their own plans of response should such violence erupt in their own hallways.
Teachers and other staff at Washington Elementary School met Thursday with Valley City Police Chief Fred Thompson to discuss the schoolâ€™s current emergency plan and how to improve it.
Jeff Bopp, director of the Sheyenne Valley Area Career and Technology Center, is thrilled with the donation of 10 new state-of-the-art welding helmets from the John Deere Seeding Co.
The program received a total of 10 auto darkening Speedglass 3M welding helmets.
Bopp said the helmets feature a lens that is totally clear but the instant an arc is struck the lens turns dark to prevent a welding flash and likewise the lens instantly becomes clear as soon as the welding arc stops.
