As the school year takes off, kids are settling into their classes while the deans are making sure this school year is a smooth sailing.

The OCPS has issued random backpack searches are randomly being issued at Oak Ridge to insure the
student’s safety and protection

“It’s happening for the safety of the student, the safety of the teachers, and just safety in general,” said Dean Danny Young.

Young goes on to explain how they do the random searches, “The district gives us specific rooms and classes we should be checking and we just randomly check.”

With backpack searches, students are expected to have their backpack randomly checked to insure not only theirs but the other students, teachers, and staff’s safety.

There has been a random backpack search doing this week and more will
come throughout the year.
