Due to recent events across the country, many K-12 schools are updating current security policies and procedures, as well as implementing new ones. Although many schools have tight security policies, putting them into practice is sometimes a challenge.

It’s not clear what his plans were, but what’s concerning is the fact that he was able to access and retrieve the key. What was he planning to do with it? How long had it been missing? Did anyone know it was missing?
