Broken doors a ‘recipe for tragedy’ at Stamford school
“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.”

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.”

Parents enter Roxbury Elementary School in Stamford. The Board of Education is pushing the city’s engineering department to tell them when the front doors at Roxbury will be repaired for security reasons.
