Security improvements coming to Cave Spring High's temporary campus

School board approves fence, other measures

ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – Plans have moved forward for security improvements at Cave Spring High School’s temporary campus.

The Roanoke County School Board approved the measures Thursday.

Crews will put in a 12-foot-tall wooden fence next to the trailers, in which students are currently attending class. The addition aims to reduce visibility from the road.

The board approved a cost of $50,000, which includes other security measures that -- for safety reasons -- the school doesn’t want to make public. These plans had been in the works for months.

There’s already a chain-link fence around the campus.

The renovation and expansion of the high school continues. Crews started tearing down part of the annex Thursday, posting pictures to social media.
