The school’s resource officer, additional law enforcement from the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office and Statesboro Police Department, the school district’s safety director, and the superintendent of schools all responded to both contain the situation and provide additional support as the school district implemented heightened safety precautions during the school’s regular student dismissal time.
