Scottsbluff Public Schools including mental health experts in safety meetings

Posted: Updated:

A newly expanded school security task force in Scottsbluff met today in an effort to better secure area schools.

Administrators at Scottsbluff Public Schools say they'll do everything in their power to prevent another Sandy Hook massacre.

That's why Thursday morning, task force members talked for more than three-hours about ways to bolster security at the district's eight schools.

Superintendent Rick Myles says this is the first meeting that included mental health professionals, which proved to be beneficial.

"I also think it was helpful for school personnel to have the ears of mental health personnel and say, 'This is how we see it from our end. These are some of the frustrations that we have' either with communication with follow up, and coordinating.'"

Scottsbluff's "Safety and Security Task Force" will meet again in about 60-days to follow up on safety protocols.
