School First in the Country to put Bulletproof Shelters in Classrooms

(TNS) - An Oklahoma school system is the first in the country to install bulletproof shelters in its classrooms.

Healdton Public Schools in Healdton, Oklahoma, installed seven bulletproof shelters at its elementary schools and two larger ones in its middle school, KOCO reported. Future plans call for adding the shelters to the system's high school.

Each shelter can hold up to 40 students and two teachers. Video monitors inside the shelter display a feed from the classroom, with the door locking from the inside.
