School increasing security after fight

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Security is being increased at Washington High School in Cedar Rapids after a fight in the building on Wednesday.

The fight involved five people, three of whom were students, and two others who don't attend that school.

In response, all school doors will be locked during the day, except for three main office doors.

Police will step up their presence around the building.

School officials say Washington High is safe, but they want to err on the side of caution.

The principal says the increased security also reflects the increased crime in the neighborhood.
