Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) announced that they have already written a letter to the families of the students about increasing security on campus.

According to Mion, the letter states that the safety of the students is FCPS’s number one responsibility. Any crime or safety issue brought to their awareness will be given immediate action. Additional security and adult support will be placed in the building. A “buddy” system will also be used when students decide to go to the bathroom or need to leave the classroom.
