38 brand new HD cameras were installed in all hallways, the commons and outside all entrances to bathrooms and locker rooms. Emerald Ridge will be one of the first schools to receive these newly created cameras.

“Everyone thinks we want to watch them but we’re not interested,” assistant principal Mark Harris said.

There will be no cameras inside the locker rooms or bathrooms; administrators and security are not interested in seeing prepubescent humans checking their makeup or gossiping about the latest episode of “Pretty Little Liars.” They’re merely interested and seeing who is going in and out of said places due to constant vandalism.

Now there will be cameras in places that have never been touched by technology of it’s sort before.

“We’re a pretty safe school but student safety is our main priority,” Harris said.

With these new cameras ER will be one of the first schools to be able to have firstv responders and police see everything that’s happening on the cameras in case of intruders. They come with a feature that allows anyone to see what’s on the cameras given they have the correct username and password. This allows teachers and administrators to log in on any computer in case of an emergency to find the danger.

The cameras will constantly be rolling but not monitored. They are there for situations in which they would be useful to look back on for evidence in case of an attack, fight or vandalism.

“I’m looking forward to having all the bathrooms open again,” Harris said. “Kids will be kids, but I still expect everyone to be respectful.”
