STROUD TOWNSHIP -- Parents and teachers in Monroe County said they are working together to make sure everyone is safe at school.

The auditorium was packed at Stroudsburg Junior High School Wednesday night.

The superintendent of the Stroudsburg Area School District told parents the schools practice regular lockdowns and safety drills.

Many parents are concerned after last Friday's tragic shooting in Connecticut.

“I just want to hear what the school's plans are. If there is anything different that they have planned for the future, and what they are looking to do to prevent that here in Stroudsburg,” Joe Orsargos.

The superintendent assured parents, officials have monthly meetings to talk about safety in the Stroudsburg Area School District.
