Security gets a new focus after drunk man is found in bathroom

School officials at Salmon Bay School in Ballard reported that an intoxicated and possibly homeless man was discovered in a boy's bathroom.

The school sent a letter to parents Tuesday, in which the assistant principal said:

"At approximately 9:30 a.m., a transient man entered our building and attempted to take shelter in a boy's bathroom. We immediately called 911 and the district security officers, and teachers were notified to keep all students and guests in their classrooms. Upon the arrival of police and paramedics, the man - who was very intoxicated but non-confrontational - left the building."

Security procedures at the school are now under review at the school but they must balance the need to maintain access for students with disabilities while making sure the building is secure.
