400 officers expected to welcome students back to Stoneman Douglas



PARKLAND, Fla. (CBS12) — Wednesday marks two weeks to the day of the deadly mass shooting at Stoneman-Douglas High School.

It also marks the first day students will return to class. Broward County Sheriff Deputies tell Circa's affiliate CBS12 students returning to school is a top priority.

However some people in the community say, that may not be enough to help the students.

"I don't think any of them will feel safe until something is actually done how about assault rifles” says Laura George.

George describes herself as part of the fabric within the Parkland community, and knows several students at Stoneman-Douglas.

She believes coming back to school just two weeks after this horrific tragedy, is way too soon for the students, teachers and staff, but believes they will all persevere.

"Those little moments of joy is how people get through tragedy” says George. “Every day there's something to be grateful for that's how they will get through it."

Wednesday morning, more than 400 law enforcement officers from around the state are expected to converge at Stoneman Douglas, to welcome the students back to class and give them a sense of security.

As for George, she feels it's the right thing to do. "I really love that” says George. "I love our law enforcement and I support them too."

Teachers arrived Tuesday morning for the second straight full day of planning at the school and once again lunch was being catered.
