(DFW.CBSLOCAL) — For some it’s the end of a tradition that has taken place for generations. Security enhancements at many North Texas schools this year may keep parents at the curb.
All of the extra security is in response to what happened nearly nine months ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It was December of last year when a gunman opened fire at the school, killing 20 students and six adults.
In the Hurst-Euless-Bedford (HEB) Independent School District, the tradition of walking a young one to class won’t change…for the first week. What’s already being done in other districts is about to happen there.
Parents registered and enrolled their children today, one week before the school year begins for the HEB school system.
But there’s a new rule waiting for parents like Tamara Moore and Angela Shamblin. It deals with access to their youngsters and both mothers have a certain view about the rule.
