|Security concerns at parish schools|
The Ouachita Parish school system is looking at ways to tighten and improve security at its 36 schools.
Superintendent Bob Webber said recent events across the country promoted a re-examination of how the school system keeps kids safe.
"It's human nature that when you have a tragedy like we saw in [Sandy Hook school,] Connecticut, it makes you bring issues like safety to the top," Webber said. "We always say that safety's our number one concern and instruction's second on the list because parents expect their children to come back home safely each day from school."
Webber was referring to the Dec. 14 shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Conn. The shooter, Adam Lanza, shot and killed his mother before embarking on the shooting spree at the elementary school. He died at the scene from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
