After receiving two bomb threats within a two week period, Maysville Local School District is taking new safety precautions.

Last Friday, the school’s administration team met to discuss safety plans that they will put in action in case a similar incident does occur. But for now, the school already has security equipment in place.

"We take safety and security very seriously here at Maysville," said Superintendent, Monte Bainter. All of our employees are issued, are being issued these types of identification badges that are that are worn at all times it’s also a key to get inside the buildings."

Along with the badges, visitors must be buzzed into the school before entering. Bainter says that incidents like this disrupts school activities, but the students are staying positive through it all.

"Our students are pretty resilient," said Bainter. They came to school Friday and attendance was no different than what it normally would be, we had good attendance so I want to thank our kids and parents for that. "

Bainter hopes that they can put this situation behind them and look forward to more positive event coming up in the near future. He encourages people to come out the community forum on October 16th, where administration will discuss these issues, winter sports and drug testing.
