(WIAT) — A Shelby County School has increased security efforts to better ease the minds of students and teachers.

The entrance of Indian Springs School has been guarded by a security officer for a long time, but that was mostly during the daytime hours.

Now, a guard mans the gate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

School leaders say the change is in response to incidents at schools across the nation.

“We take their security seriously, and we want them [to come] to school believing that school is a safe place,” Gareth Vaughan said on Friday.

The decision was made at the start of the school year and was implemented in April.
