D50 Begins Random Weapons Detector Checks

On Wednesday, November 16, Greenwood School District 50 began random weapons detector checks at Emerald High School. The random weapons detector checks will begin at other middle and high school locations in the coming weeks.

Superintendent Dr. Steve Glenn said, “We were very pleased with the first random weapons detector check at Emerald High School earlier today. We appreciate the support of our school administrators, our SROs, and our staff in making this a smooth and efficient process for our students.”

“Everyone needs to understand that these checks will continue and they will be random,” Natalie Talbert, District Safety Manager, said. “We want to say thank you in advance to our students, our parents, and our staff for their cooperation as we implement this important safety measure in D50. The ultimate goal, as it is with everything we do, is to help keep everyone safe.”

Any questions or concerns regarding this new safety measure in D50, should be directed to your child’s school principal.
