Bro­ken doors a ‘recipe for tragedy’ at Stam­ford school

Stamford Advocate (Sunday) - - Reactions -

“The board re­ceived $550,000 for cap­i­tal se­cu­rity projects and the cost to re­pair Roxbury doors is $250,000. No brainer it seems. Money is there. Is our dis­grace­ful mayor wait­ing for a tragedy to oc­cur? Fix the doors, for Pete's sake. Oh, that's right, the 15K spent on the use­less bul­let­proof glass for your of­fice was more im­por­tant.”

— Jenny Kalooch, via face­book.com/stam­for­dad­vo­cate “They’re wait­ing for some­thing to hap­pen THEN they’ll im­me­di­ately get on it like ev­ery­thing else in this world.”

— Maria Scatur­chio Castel­lucci, via

face­book.com/stam­for­dad­vo­cate “OMG. That is so hor­ri­ble. The PTO at that school needs to do some se­ri­ous fundrais­ing and take care of those doors them­selves. Why are stu­dents from Westhill go­ing over to Roxbury??? To visit an old teacher? A ba­sic locked door is some­times the only thing that stands in be­tween a crazy per­son and tragedy. If the Board of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives wasn’t so busy pass­ing laws about plas­tic bags, maybe they could ad­dress se­cu­rity is­sues at schools for el­e­men­tary-aged chil­dren. Where are ev­ery­one's pri­or­i­ties? This ar­ti­cle is in­fu­ri­at­ing.”
