New security measures have been instituted in the Eastchester school district after the arrest of a man for trespassing.
"We will be taking some additional steps. We will be adding an additional security officer for times when students are outside. So, that security person will be posted outdoors at all times when students are outdoors, and then we will have an increased police presence as well for the next several days," says Eastchester School District Superintendent Dr. Robert Glass.
Dr. Glass says the man approached the Waverly School, rang the doorbell, tried to open the door, and stood outside for a few minutes on Wednesday.
News 12 is told it is not the same man who managed to get inside the school last year.
