Front Door Security update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is a reminder that beginning Monday, February 3, 2014 our school doors, including the front door, will be locked 15 minutes after the morning bell rings.  The doors will remain locked for the rest of the school day. All visitors, including Board staff, parents and guardians, will be required to buzz in and sign in at the main office.

We recommend you child has all the items s/he need before the start of the school day including lunches. If you need to drop lunch off for your child, you will need to buzz in and sign in at our office. We are asking all parents or guardians to do so at 12:30 p.m., not earlier, to avoid having to wait to be buzzed into the school.

Our school continues to be a safe place where we welcome and encourage parent and community member involvement. This additional step will enhance the measures we already have in place for student and staff safety, and ensure that all visitors sign in at the main office.

If you have any questions, please contact myself or Ms. Bongard.

Sincerely,

Mr. Collins & Ms. Bongard

    Will the door be locked after dismissal for YMCA pick-ups?

    Knowing that our children are safe is very important.
    I have a suggestion though: from time to time I bring lunch for my children and I see that many other parents do the same, they either drop it off, pick the kids up, hand lunch to them. Since the office will buzz us in, and you give us a specific time (12:30), and we are not there for more than 5 min, I don’t see the point of all of us to come to the office and sign in and out. The school staff already knows the purpose of our visit, and see us on camera when we are buzzed in.
    If we have to sign in, than we can actually come earlier and wait for the bell.
    Thanx again for keeping our children safe.
