Local elementary school evaluating safety measures

Posted: Updated:

BALLSTON LAKE, N.Y. – Monday was a tough day for both teachers and parents across the U.S. as students went back to school after Friday's Sandy Hook tragedy.

Parents like Renee Commisso say it could have been any town. "I thought about how I was going to tell them on and off all weekend," she said.

Her two 8-years-olds attend Stevens Elementary in Ballston Lake, a small school district that is starting to make big changes because of the shooting.

"They have a desk set up at the school with someone out front," Commisso explained.

In a letter sent out by the superintendent to all parents the school district explained they are evaluating safety procedures and resources. They are also planning on expanding video surveillance to monitor key entry points.

For now Commisso is depending on the school to keep her children safe and out of harms way with new procedures in place.
