"Tidehaven trustees to hire school marshals" by: Jessica Shepard

   After 25 minutes in closed session, Tidehaven trustees unanimously approved hiring school marshals as part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s School and Firearm Safety Action Plan at the June 27 special meeting. 
   “Due to the nature of their positions as school marshals, I can’t reveal many specifics,” said Superintendent Dr. Andrew Seigrist. 
   “Revealing their numbers on campus, classes taught, genders or other specific facts could put them in danger if we were ever to have an active shooter emergency.”
