After last week’s school shooting in Florida, North Atlanta High School will institute safety measures that include disciplining students who order food delivery and tighter rules for visitors.
North Atlanta principal Curtis Douglass sent a letter to parents Friday outlining security changes at the high school.
Among the changes are requirements that all visitors enter through the main lobby, check in at the main office and be escorted to meetings; doors to the building from the lobby will be locked; and students and parents are prohibited from ordering food delivery to the school via Uber Eats, GrubHub and other services. “Students found propping open doors, letting people in through any door other than the front door or picking up food delivery will face disciplinary consequences,” the principal wrote.
He also listed procedures for checking out a student early and picking up and dropping students. The changes are effective immediately, and meetings will be held with students to go over the new rules. Read the full letter below:
