EXPORT, Pa. - On Monday, Franklin Regional held its first school board meeting since the stabbing rampage at the school.

Channel 11 reporter Timyka Artist was at the school for the meeting that parents and students attended.

Board President Dr. Larry Borland thanked the group for their support and commenced those for their tremendous acts of heroism.

“Prior preparation for the unthinkable helped minimize the number and perhaps the severity of those injured,” said Borland.

Superintendent Gennaro Piraino echoed the sentiments, saying when faced with the ultimate test, the district lived up to its reputation of being #FRStrong.

Assistant Superintendent Mary Catherine Reljac said in the coming months, the district will reassess its security and threat prevention policies with a renewed slant toward relationship building.

“I would say we are making strides.  I don't think this is something we have the blue print for,” said Reljac.

Alex Hribal, 16, is charged as an adult with multiple counts of attempted homicide and aggravated assault.  His hearing, originally scheduled for this week, has been pushed back to May.
