With a new school year comes new warnings for would-be criminals.

Numerous school districts on the South Plains have begun issuing warnings about their staff being armed and protecting their students.

Now, Big Spring ISD has gotten into the act warning anyone entering the school:

Please Be Aware That The Staff At Big Spring ISD Are Armed and Will Use Whatever Force Necessary to Protect Our Students.

Hopefully, steps like this will keep students safe in the event of another incident. But I would rather not have any other incidents like we have seen over the past few years ever happen again.
