The Clark County School District said it is considering the use of metal detectors at Cheyenne High School.

In a statement released to FOX5, the district said: "Cheyenne High School has been offered and is exploring the possibility of metal detectors."

The district said a community business "is interested in offering this support to one of our schools."

While student safety remains a top priority, the district said it is advocating for more adults on campuses such as counselors, teachers, school police, and safety staff to establish relationships with students to prevent any incidents before they occur.

In addition, the district said staff will remain engaged with the work of the Governor's Statewide School Safety Task Force and their recommendations for school safety.
