Buffalo Island Central’s administration team is wasting no time to better secure their schools.
“We have not ever had resource officers on campus,” Taylor said. “The thing we are looking at for the upcoming year would be having our local police officers, both Monette and Leachville, come in on their off days so we would have full time resource officers or an officer on campus at all times.”
Taylor is also working with the Mississippi County Sheriff’s Department to further maximize school security.
“It's insane when we get to this point, but at the same time, our kids are our most precious commodity and we cannot jeopardize their safety in any means,” Taylor said.
