"As you know recently our nation was rocked by the school shooting in Parkland, Florida," Hennelly said. "In response to this event I've been in constant contact with superintendent of schools, Dr. Michael LaSusa.

"We are dedicated to providing the students of the Chatham School District a safe environment that is conducive to learning. In an effort to enhance security for the students and faculty, additional officers have been deployed amongst the various schools to supplement the security personnel already on staff."
