All visitors now need to be buzzed into the building by a school staff member. The camera and door bell are located to the right of the main doors. All visitors will still be required to check in at the front office and show identification. This new system will allow all of the outside doors to be locked during the school day. Our main doors will remain unlocked from 7:45 – 8:15 am and from 2:50 – 3:30 pm. On February 7th we will be having a Community Safety Meeting to inform parents of existing and ongoing measures to ensure school safety. We will be informing parents of current laws regarding public and school safety, update the parents on all safety-related practices in our schools, provide them with guidelines on actions they can take at home to increase student/ school safety, and engage in a discussion on safety. This meeting is at 6:30 pm in the EMS Cafetorium.
