Manchester City Schools add bullet resistant laminate to all doors and windows

Pictured are new graphics on the entry doors at Westwood Middle School. The school, along with College Street and Westwood Elementary, now has protective "Eversafe Laminates" that make them bullet and shatter resistant.

Manchester City Schools (MCS) has taken an important step towards ensuring the safety of its students and faculty by installing new bullet and shatter resistant film on windows and doors on all three of its campuses (Westwood Middle, Westwood Elementary, College Street Elementary).

The new security measures were announced by Dr. Joey Vaughn, Director of MCS, who appeared on the WMSR Thunder Radio Morning Show to talk about the school’s proactive approach to campus safety.

The windows and doors are now covered with “Eversafe Laminate.” The measure was actually taken before spring break, with entry doors later covered with school-themed graphics that allow school personnel to see out, without anyone seeing in.

According to Vaughn, the laminate is designed to absorb and disperse the force of impact. He reiterated that the coverings make forced entry much more difficult, saying such a situation would “buy time.” He said the coverings are not “bullet proof” but are “resistant.”
