Schools in Glens Falls to beef up security in wake of Connecticut tragedy

An Adirondack-area school district is upgrading security this week in reaction to last month's school shooting in Connecticut.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports ( ) that the Hudson Falls district near the Vermont border will install a camera, intercom and buzzer system at the main entrance of each of its five school buildings. The work will begin this week.

School districts throughout the nation have reviewed security procedures in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings. A gunman shot his way into the school on Dec. 14 and slaughtered 20 children and six women before committing suicide as police arrived.
