KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WFFT) - East Noble Middle School students will return in the fall in a new state of the art building.

The new building comes with upgraded security features designed to keep kids safe inside.

One of those features includes a new "secured entrance" which forces visitors to stop in the office before accessing the rest of the building.

However, East Noble School Corporation superintendent Ann Linson told FOX 55 that's not where the security stops.

"We have a lot of security features in the building we don't share publicly, but that was definitely at the for front of our planning," she said.

Protecting students doesn't stop at an armed intruder.

Linson said they designed the building to protect against the weather too.

"Some of the buildings you can't go where there's open glass, open doors, so all of the ends of the building a designed differently," said Linson.

Teachers will begin moving into the new building next month.

There will be an open house July 29 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for the public to tour the new school.
