GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The public is invited to two roundtable discussions on school safety in the Green Bay Area Public School District.

School and police officials say the meetings will be held:

  • March 10, 10:30 a.m.-noon, Preble High School commons, 2222 Deckner Ave. (Childcare will be provided in the Library Media Center for the event. Parents are asked to call (920) 448-2025 to reserve a spot for their child.)

  • April 16, 6-7:30 p.m., West High School commons, 966 Shawano Ave.

The meetings come in the wake of a shooting at a high school in Florida that left 17 people dead as well as a social media threat against schools in the Green Bay area.

Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith proposed last week posting an armed guard at each Green Bay public school.

Translators will be available at the meetings, the school district says.

A meeting originally scheduled for March 8 was canceled because of a scheduling conflict.
