UPDATE ON JINGLE BELLS:
A front door security system was installed this weekend at an East Knox County elementary school after the News Sentinel reported a set of Christmas bells provided the only warning of visitors to the building.

School Board member Mike McMillan confirmed today that workers on Saturday installed an airphone security system on the front door of Ritta Elementary.
