ICYMI: UPDATE FROM Newport News, Virginia

"Dr. Parker said Richneck staff want him to explore the idea of students using clear backpacks. The school division would pay for the backpacks.

School officials also said Richneck Elementary will be closed through next week. At that point, Dr. Parker hopes to have a date picked out for when students will go back to class.

When students eventually return, metal detectors will be in place. There will also be a full-time school security officer rather than a part-time officer. In addition, mental health clinicians will be available for students and staff onsite.

The district said it's working with the Uvalde Foundation for Kids which is providing resources for students."
