School Security

In light of everything that has been happening in our schools lately, it is a good time of the year to examine our safety procedures. I recently reviewed footage of our security system and noticed “cracks” in the system. The codes that each family have are set-up to work only between the hours of 6:30-7:30 and 3:15-6:00. All entry between 7:30-3:15 is to be done through the front doors. If a parent is coming into the school to volunteer they need to sign in and wear a volunteer badge. The students and teachers have been instructed not to open the back doors during the course of the day as this breaks the security during the school day. Please, do not be offended when a teacher or student does not open a back door for you since the security system was created in conjunction with the police department for the optimal safety of all students. Please share this information with anyone who may pick up your children.

Also, remember if you are coming in the school for more than drop off or pick up, you must sign in. Parents should not be wandering the halls during the school day. The hallways should remain a place free of distraction. If you need to pick up your child for an appointment, please stop by the front desk and Mrs. Happel will page for your child or alert the child’s teacher that you are here for pick up.

Wednesday Evening Meals –We are asking for your help in regards to the Wednesday Lenten suppers. We are asking that the gym area be kept as a dining hall for the evening and not a gymnasium. People are coming back and forth, including the elderly, and we want to keep it as a safe environment for everyone. If students are running around and playing tag, they are not watching for those coming and going. Thank you for your help.

 Yearbook Photos: Please, please email any pictures you have for the yearbook to . We need sports, music, classroom candids like parties and field trips, Science sensations, Science Fair,  Spirit Week, etc. 

Yearbook Volunteers:

I have sent emails to the student emails if they showed interest in the beginning of the year. We had a small meeting yesterday. Next week Tuesday 3/6 and Thursday 3/8 we will have beginning work days for the yearbook. We will meet from 3:15 until 4:00. Please try to attend one of those dates in order to learn the yearbook program.

Sickness – It is being reported that this is is one of the worst in recent years for sickness including the flu itself. We are asking for your help in keeping as much sickness out of the building as possible. If your child has been running a fever in the past 24 hours, please keep your child home. Also, if your child has had flu-like symptoms such as vomiting, aches, or chills, please use a 24 hour guide before sending them back to school. With a little help from everyone, we can keep those in the building a little healthier.
