Five Things You Need to Know
1 - SAFETY REQUEST: RING THE BELL AT THE FRONT DOOR TO ENTER THE BUILDING
Safety is our number one task at Ben Hem. When students feel safe at school they do their best learning. An important safety protocol is that every adult that wants to enter our build is buzzed in by our front office. Please do not ask teachers, students, or exiting visitors to hold the door so you can enter. We have a clear protocol to receive visitors and expect everyone to follow this protocol. We appreciate your help with this important matter.
