(CNN)– A Florida mother has paid to have a deputy stand guard at her daughter’s elementary school.

Laura Lauria paid nearly $12,000 for an officer to be at Old Kings Elementary School in Flagler Beach.

A deputy will be at the school six hours a day, Monday through Friday, according to the sheriff’s office.

School resource deputies are stationed at all Flagler County high schools and some middle schools, but not at elementary schools.
