Peekskill High School students could be closed in

Peekskill High School is proposing a plan to closely monitor rules on allowing students to step out during the day, and is even debating building a fence.

New School Superintendent Dr. James Willis is recommending to the Board of Education that come January, the campus be closed and students no longer have the luxury of leaving school grounds for lunch, a rule that already is being enforced.

Willis says the plan is about safety and the fence would be built to keep students from crossing the street and away from oncoming traffic.
