Notice for Parents
January 6, 2014
Important notice regarding student safety
and campus access
Our staff has been working on more progressive measures focused on safety of the school. We value your children and want to ensure their safety as well as educating them.
As a result of insurance company recommendations, all classroom doors are now locked throughout the school day. Additionally, students have begun depositing their backpacks in designated spaces on the playground as they arrive in the morning. These changes have resulted in improved classroom safety and less unsupervised AM hallway activity, respectively.
Beginning Monday, January 6, all parents are to drop off their children at one of two gates beginning at 8 a.m., as this is when campus supervision is on duty. The two gates that will be open will be the front gate located next to the MP room and the rolling gate in back of school. No parents should be on campus.
If you wish to walk your child to their classroom, you MUST sign in at the office and wear a visitor sticker, then sign out as you leave. If you wish to come into the campus to pick up your child at 2:05, you MUST sign in at the office as a visitor, wear a visitor sticker and sign out as you leave.
For students who come to school at the late staggered time (grades 1-3), the front MP gate will be the only open gate. Parents are to drop off their students at that gate. If you wish to walk your child to their classroom, you MUST sign in at the office and wear a visitor sticker, then sign out as you leave.
For the 2:05 dismissal, the only gate that will be open is the front MP gate. ALL grades 1-3 students dismissed at 2:05 will come out of that gate. The back rolling gate will NOT be open at this time.
For the 2:50 dismissal, the back rolling gate and the front MP gate will be open. Staff members will be there to ensure that students exit the school grounds. Parents must wait OUTSIDE the gates for their children.
The current TK and kindergarten drop-off and pick-up procedures will continue.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation with our new safety procedure.
