SINTON - Officials with Sinton ISD put new security measures in place this week to restrict who can come on campus or board a school bus. But next Wednesday armed guards will be at every campus.
In the coming weeks, the district will purchase biometric devices, fingerprint readers, that will allow administrators to identify every student who takes the bus in order to help ensure no one else is able to get onboard.
Superintendent Steve VanMatre says the changes are in response to last month's school shooting in Connecticut.
This week the district stopped allowing the public to visit the athletic tracks on campus during class times. Only staff, students and authorized delivery drivers are allowed to get past the welcome center at the high school.
