Security camera footage shows several people, including one in a police vest, standing on a woman's doorstep around 6:30 a.m.

Burke County Public Schools also has plans to help students in need after Wednesday's ICE arrests and if any other ICE arrests should happen in the future, according to a statement released to The News Herald on Saturday. 

"As a district, our Student and Family Services Department, our school resource officers, our school counselors, our parent educators and our translators are prepared to come together and respond to meet students' needs," said a statement from Cheryl Shuffler, public relations officer for BCPS. "We are offering assistance to any student who requires any additional support services and are here to match them to resources in our community."

Making school a safe place for all students is crucial, the statement said.

"We want to assure parents that when their kids come to school, they will be safe, they will be fed breakfast and lunch and in some cases dinner and will receive the resources they need while they are at school," Shuffler said. "And we want to provide all students with a secure feeling while they are at school."
