February 11, 2013

BURRILLVILLE — A special risk assessment team formed in December to evaluate existing school safety measures and review ideas and proposals to improve school safety has completed a safety assessment for each of the district's five schools and will draft a report for review by municipal and school leaders.
The Risk Assessment Team was put into place two weeks after the Dec. 14 tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, where a guman killed his mother before opening fire at the school, killing 20 children and six adults.
