Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools discusses improving school safety after gun found in Mount Tabo

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools district leaders are addressing violence and safety prevention measures in schools after four guns were recently found on campuses in the last few weeks. "We will be taking this very seriously and guns have no place on campus," Superintendent Tricia McManus said. District leaders spoke Thursday after the recent findings of weapons on WS/FCS campuses. It also comes after the Sept. 1 deadly Mount Tabor High School shooting, numerous threats, and false reports spreading throughout different school districts. The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools district said an SRO found a gun Thursday in a student's backpack at Mount Tabor High School. Another gun was found Sept. 8 at Parkland High School and another on Sept. 21 at Reynolds High School. School leaders are talking about immediate and long-term district responses. That includes having assessment teams going into schools that have higher rates of violence and fights. The assessment team will then determine what supervision plans need to change or if they need more support. The district also said both Mount Tabor and Parkland schools will receive more support staff including additional counselors.
