After the outbreak of school shootings across the country, many have increased the demand for higher security in their schools. Findlay High School has decided to make additions to the school in hopes to ensure the safety of its students.
“Making improvements to our building’s security has been on our five year permanent improvement list,” Director of Operations Dennis McPheron said.
The renovations will create a safer atmosphere and keep students from having to leave the building to get to class.
“The most exciting part is the sense of the building being secure and comfort for students crossing to and from the fine arts wing,” McPheron said.
The project is set to be completed in the middle of November.
“With the constructions I have to catch a bus after band which means getting all the way to the freshmen wing to exit the building,” senior Emily Bartow said. “I have to run to the bus or I will miss it.”
Despite the inconvenience that the construction has caused the students as they start school, the improvements will provide students with the assurance that their safety is critical to FHS.
“We are very appreciative to students for their cooperation,” McPheron said. “We understand that this may cause some inconveniences for the time being but the end product will be something that both students and the community can be proud of.”
