Local schools address Connecticut shooting

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Counselors and staff are on hand ready to talk to students at Hardin County schools this morning.  The school district plans to carry on its normal routines, reassuring students and parents that school is safe.

Bryan Lewis, GC Elementary School principal, says, "I think it's important for them to know that all the adults here at school are here to keep them safe and that's our main priority and we will do anything to keep them safe."

Administrators reached out to parents Sunday, reminding them they are well prepared for emergency situations.

The schools have lockdown procedures in place and student safety is the number one priority.

GC Burkhead Elementary practiced a lockdown drill just a couple weeks ago. Friday's mass murder is a reminder of how schools can improve their safety procedures.

Lewis says, "It's always good to go back and refresh and bring those procedures and those thoughts back to the front of our minds just to ensure the safety of everyone."

Hardin County Schools will have counselors and staff on hand ready to talk to students if needed.
