Crisis Ready?

In an effort to make Village Academy ready for a crisis we are asking teachers to do the following:

1. Please make sure your door is locked at all times.

2. If you see a door propped open please remove the object that is preventing the door from locking.

3. If you notice a lock is broken please email Ms. Roy with the location and description of what is broken so a work order can be submitted.

Window coverings for your classroom doors are being created and laminated by office aides starting 12/8/15. If you do not have a window covering you will receive one.
