If you’ve been to campus recently, you may have seen the new fence being put upalong the lower field off the parking lot. This is part of the new security measurescoming to our school. Other features will include enclosing the MPR patio withperimeter fencing, and reconfiguring gates around school to close automatically. Inaddition, the school entrance will be redesigned. An additional doorway will beadded, in a way that requires visitors to pass through the office before entering thecampus. As you can see, this work is already underway, and we hope to have it allcompleted before school resumes in August.Thanks to the generous support of our FFO, another exciting facility improvementcoming over Spring Break will be the installation of a shade structure over the K/1playground. Thank you, FFO!
