Half Hollow Hills weighs stepped up security at every school in district

The Half Hollow Hills Board of Education is continuing its talks with the community about whether armed guards would be stationed at every school in the district.
The stepped-up security could cost upwards of $1 million a year.
The plan would include an armed guard in an unmarked vehicle at the perimeter of the property during school hours. District representatives say the armed guards would only go into a school in the event of an armed intruder.
News 12’s Thema Ponton was at Paumanok Elementary School in Dix Hills where a security company is giving a presentation for members of the community about the services they can provide.
