Parents shocked at unlocked schools, entry buzzers off
Security systems are being turned off and front doors unlocked at five dozen elementary schools in Ottawa as a result of the latest job action by Ontario teachers.
It’s a move that’s causing concern among some parents, who say they’re worried about their kids’ safety.
There are 60 city schools that have a security buzzer system in place, and are being affected, said Sharlene Hunter, a spokeswoman for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board
“What has happened is that the schools that have the buzzer systems, they have been turned off and will now follow the same rules that the other schools follow,” said Hunter.
