According to the below message on their website, the Lakewood Board of Education is now requiring all attendees to pass through a metal detector and/or be “wanded” to be allowed to attend any future Board of Education meetings. You can of course discuss this requirement with them in person on Febuary 12th, if you are willing to submit to the screening, or you can call the superintendent of Schools (Laura A. Winters) at (732) 905-3633. This requirement comes in response to a recent attack at the Lakewood Town Hall.
It is extremely unfortunate that I must share this message with all of you today; however, due to recent developments, and a frightening attack at Town Hall this past week, the Board of Education now requires that all attendees must pass through a metal detector and/or hand held metal detector wand in order to attend any future Board of Education meetings. 
Metal detectors and metal detector wands are utilized at all Lakewood Public Schools and School events. 
The next Board of Education meeting is scheduled for February 12, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (732) 905-3633.

Respectfully,

Laura A. Winters
Superintendent of Schools
