Meeting Tuesday on School Safety in Stratford

In the wake of the Newtown school shooting massacre, Superintendent of Stratford Schools Irene Cornish will lead a meeting on school security tomorrow, Dec. 18, at Stratford Academy-Johnson House, scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.

The meeting, held in the school's auditorium, will focus on security measures at the district's elementary schools. It will run for two hours and all are welcome to attend.

"It'll be an honest meeting," Cornish told Patch. "I'll try the best I can to answer questions."

Cornish said Mayor John A. Harkins and Police Chief Patrick Ridenhour will also be present.

The superintendent said police officers are stationed at the two middle schools and the two high schools. The other schools in the district are being checked on frequently by officers in the nearby areas, Cornish said.

"We have to focus on tightening our securities already in place," she said.
