Legislator calls for laminated glass for classrooms to protect students
When a student with a gun was able to enter classrooms at a Hastings middle school last month, he was able to do so by breaking the rectangular window next to each door, and reaching in to unlock the door.
Within days, those windows had been replaced. Hastings Middle School Principal Mark Zuzek recognized the need immediately and took the steps necessary to safeguard students. Thirty-five windows at the middle school were replaced at a cost of $2,100.
