Cabarrus County Schools continues to enhance campus safety. In April, we will begin staggered, random safety checks using metal detectors in our secondary level schools. We want to deter students from bringing weapons and inappropriate items to school and believe these devices will help us to do that.
Initially, we will begin implementing the safety checks in four schools to learn best practices and make process adjustments before a complete implementation in all of our middle and high schools in the fall.
We have worked with security screening professionals to train the school safety teams, and school staff will receive training before the safety checks begin at their schools. Parents and students also will receive information about expectations and procedures prior to the start of the checks, which are another layer of safety that we provide to secure our campuses.
March is Youth Art Month and Music in our Schools Month. Students’ visual arts, musical, and theatrical talents are on display in a variety of venues. We will celebrate both of these observances with our annual Arts Festival in Downtown Concord on Friday, April 5th. Be sure to check out our Fine Arts Focus page for information about performances, displays and events.
