GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — With mass killings and school shootings rampant in the U.S., it’s hard for some people to think twice about not having School Resource Officers (SROs) in our schools for safety. However, a group of Guilford County parents are asking the school board to remove SRO’s from schools.
“We are treating our middle and high school kids like criminals,” Janette Holland, a mother involved with the group Parents Protecting Parents, said.
Parents Protecting Parents approached the Guilford County School Board, asking them to consider removing SROs from schools. The School Board is now hosting two meetings to gather public input about the role, presence and impact of SROs in Guilford County Schools.
GREENSBORO, NC — Get prepared for possible severe weather in the Triad on Wednesday. A strong storm system will be headed our way and could bring damaging winds, flooding, and even isolated tornadoes from mid-morning through early evening. Make sure you’re ready and have a plan.
This system already brought tornadoes to Louisiana Tuesday afternoon, with that threat moving slightly east to Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia overnight. This line of severe weather will push through Georgia in the early morning hours, then arriving in the Western Carolinas by morning. For the Piedmont of North Carolina, we’ll need to watch the radar beginning in the mid to late morning hours, lasting through the afternoon as this line of storms moves through.
