A look at recent threats made against Kershaw County schools
School ThreatsW
The new Camden Elementary School is taking shape on Laurens Street. As far as safety goes, KCSD officials said all new schools in the district will have a security entrance with a holding area where visitors have to be identified before they are allowed access to an office or reception area. Once that has occurred, visitors leaving the main office to enter the building will have to be buzzed in to gain access to the main hallways. There will also be security cameras and controlled access at all main outside doors. - photo by Jim Tatum
