The Hilton Head Island Town Council on Thursday expressed its support of extra security precautions being taken at Hilton Head Island High School to protect students and staff following news of a student reportedly carrying a handgun on school property this week.

"With concern for students, teachers, staff and parents, we stand behind school principal Amanda O'Nan and security measures she is implementing for everyone's safety," said Mayor John McCann. "We offer our support as school administrators continue to provide a safe learning environment."
