Parents and schools staffers are making a renewed push for better school security following a pair of incidents the past few weeks.

The effort comes after a Feb. 13 break-in at Bay Farm School that left a kindergarten classroom in disarray and an incident at Edison Elementary School 10 days later. Kelandre Rejaun Dunn, 27, who police said was on drugs, allegedly grabbed an Edison employee in the school’s office, tried to steal employees’ property and fought with police who came to arrest him.
