In the wake of Monday’s tragedy at Butler High School, the Matthews Police Department will have an increased presence at all Matthews schools, which of course includes Butler High School. Matthews Police Chief Clark Pennington says, “It is important for Butler parents, students and staff to know that we are using all available means to ensure their safety. We also want the Butler community to know we are grieving with you and we will do our part to ensure a smooth transition back into school and allow you to continue with the healing process.”
Chief Pennington will be at Butler on Thursday morning to greet students and staff as they return to school.
