Local reaction to CT shootings


Officials with the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District say they were shocked and saddened when news of the massacre first hit.

Ironically, according to Fairbanks School Superintendent Pete Lewis, his administrators were already in the process of reviewing contingency plans related to school shootings and other such incidents.

Lewis says while nothing can truly prepare for such a tragedy, plans are in the works to avoid disaster as much as possible.

Lewis also says it takes a concerted effort from many to make it all work for the better.
