PIGGOTT, AR (KAIT) -

Teachers at the Piggott School District received Stop the Bleeding training on Friday.

This is the first time area law enforcement and the school has partnered for the training.

High School Principal Paul Seegraves said the school's number one priority is student safety and he is glad they were able to host the training.

"That's very useful not just in case of an active shooter, but any type of disaster where you know bleeding needs to be stopped," he said.  "I think it's very beneficial where we can share the information with other people and get the students involved where they can learn from this as well."

He said the school will host another training like this in the future.

"I think it's going to be a yearly event to help us be prepared," he said.
