Central Bucks is moving forward with a plan to secure the entrances to its schools.
In the wake of the massacre at a Connecticut grade school in December, parents, teachers and school administrators across the country turned their thoughts, again, to school security. In Central Bucks, new superintendent Dr. Rodney Green and school board members reviewed the district's approach to security and decided to make some changes. Those changes will be discussed at the Central Bucks school board meeting Tuesday night. Among them is a new secure entryway system now being installed at the district's elementary and middle schools. The new entry system that requires visitors to be buzzed into the buildings was installed at Linden Elementary School in Doylestown Borough during the holiday vacation, according to the report Green plans …

Dr. Rodney Green donned a furry costume to surprise some Central Bucks students.
They sat on the floor of their classroom, staring at the furry ape in the chair. The "ape" was reading "The Escape of Marvin the Ape," about an ape who escapes from a zoo. But the kids had no idea who was inside the costume. Michelle Blair invites all kinds of special visitors into her Kutz Elementary classroom to be a "mystery reader" and get her first grade students excited about reading. Part of the fun is that the kids don't know who is reading to them. "The kids had a great time trying to guess who was behind the costume," Blair said. When "Marvin" took off his head, the kids were astounded to see the new superintendent of their school district, Dr. Rodney Green, inside the ape costume. "The kids will never forget this," Blair said…
