It's the first day of classes at Hazleton Area High School.
Some students were still waiting to get inside the school about a half-hour after they should have been seated for home room.
We found dozens and dozens of students still lined up outside the high school this morning around 8 a-m.
The security rules require the school's 17-hundred students segregate into groups of boys only and girls only.
The girls must enter through the Southeast doors next the to faculty parking lot and pass through one of two metal detectors.
The boys must enter through the main entrance and also pass through one of two metal detectors.
All students must also get their backpacks, purses and similar items searched by a security guard.
The first wave of students went through the new security process around 7;15 this morning.
The last of the students passed through around 8:30.
Some students seemed frustrated, but other were more patient with the process aimed at keeping them safe.
This security upgrade comes after an incident last semester in which three teens were arrested after dozens of bullets were found in the boy's lavatory.
Hazleton Area School Officials plan to meet at some point today to make sure students can get into the school more quickly than they did this morning.
Mark Hiller will have more on this story tonight on Eyewitness News.
