High schools and middle schools in Catawba county will now add 10 new metal detectors to school decor.

There are some parents that don’t feel like it’s necessary because at Maiden High School, there hasn’t been a gun found on campus all year. I’d like to say that is awesome, but it’s also good to be proactive to make sure it stays that way.

Some parents are ok with it because they feel as though the school district is being proactive to keep the kids safe. I think there will be some parents that are on the fence with the message that the metal detectors could be sending. Some of them are completely ok with it. What are your thoughts?
