LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LISD hosted the first of four school safety community meetings at Lubbock High School Monday night.

LISD Communications Director Nancy Sharp said, "We've done a lot to prepare for the day we hope never comes but also we need our community to join us. There are so many things that parents and community members can do to help us keep our schools safe."

The meeting began with LISD officials walking parents, staff, and members of the community through the school safety procedures currently in place. Then, those attending were split into groups for elementary, middle school, and high school.

Melissa McDougal, a parent of two boys in elementary school, said she felt like their voices were heard.

"What I really appreciate about this is them taking our input. As they're going around, they're asking each different elementary, middle school, and high school (group) their ideas on what can be changed. What do you like and what do you not like and taking our input. That's what I'm really appreciative of tonight."

If you missed tonight and wish to voice your concerns or want to learn more about LISD's safety procedures, there are still three LISD school safety meetings left this month. April 23 at Estacado High School, April 24 at Coronado High School, and April 30 at Monterey High School.
