School safety was the subject of discussion Wednesday morning on the WNPV program Legally Speaking. Souderton Area High School Principal Dr. Sam Varano says, since moving in to the new building, the school is better equipped to keep students safe.
“For any visitor to come in the building they have to have a driver’s license that is run through our system and we get an immediate report back if there is anything on that person’s record as far as misbehavior with children.”
Varano says, there’s another vital safety feature that adds to the level of security.
“There are close to 60 cameras in and around the building that can be viewed at anytime by our security personnel.”
The school also employs three security officers, and a school resource officer from the Franconia Twp. P.D.
