Safety Information

Your child's safety is, and always has been, our number one priority. Here are a few of the things we are doing to ensure your child's continued safety:


1. Exterior doors will remain locked at all times. Checks of exterior doors will be conducted to ensure they are locked and closed securely.

2. Interior doors will remain locked at all times.

3. No adult will be admitted to the building without being screened through our Raptor system which checks for criminal history violations.

4. All visitors will be issued a visitor's badge with a photo ID printed on it. Badges will be collected upon exiting the building. Visitors will be required to enter through the newly constructed vestibule at the front entrance.

5. A variety of safety drills will be conducted routinely in order to ensure students and staff know protocols for various emergency situations.
