Texas school warns visitors that staff may be armed (VIDEO)

The Medina Independent School District is home to 303 students, and according to a sign placed by an entrance Wednesday, possibly, a few firearm-toting faculty members.

“Attention,” reads the new sign. “Please be aware that the staff at Medina ISD may be armed and will use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.”

The school consists of students from pre-kindergarten all the way through high school. Superintendent Penny White said the board of trustees had decided to put up the sign after about a year of discussion.

“You never know if there’s a transient or someone who has zeroed in on harming a child,” White said.

Two other signs will be added to the other entrances of the school, so no matter what way a visitor enters, they will have been warned.
