It was a great week at Peachtree as you will see when you scroll through the pictures below!


Those of you who have visited the school this week probably noticed that an additional layer of security is being added to our front door. A glass door has been added to create a vestibule, from where visitors will enter the building. Thank you in advance for your support, flexibility, and positivity with this change.


Although security measures are extremely important, in no way are they meant to deter families from coming and engaging at school. In fact, I am happy to announce that the cafeteria is open for visitors starting next week (see below for more details). We need, and want, our families to work with us and will continue to invite you to meetings and events at Peachtree. We hope to see you here!


Part of safety and security here at Peachtree includes safety drills such as lockdown drills, fire drills, and tornado drills. During the last week of September, we will hold our first of two Lockdown Drills. School resource officers will be a part of this exercise drill to ensure that all safety measures are followed. We encourage you to discuss this drill ahead of time with your children. Remind them the purpose is to ensure that we keep all of our school stakeholders safe.


¡Fue una gran semana en Peachtree, como verá a medida que se desplaza por las imágenes a continuación!


Aquellos de ustedes que han visitado la escuela esta semana probablemente notaron que se está agregando un nivel adicional de seguridad a nuestra puerta principal. Se agregó una puerta de vidrio adicional para crear un vestíbulo, desde donde los visitantes ingresarán al edificio. Gracias de antemano por su apoyo, flexibilidad y positivismo con las capas adicionales de seguridad y cambios.


Aunque las medidas de seguridad son extremadamente importantes, de ninguna manera pretenden disuadir a las familias de venir y participar en la escuela. De hecho, me complace decir que la cafetería estará abierta para los visitantes a partir de la próxima semana. (Consulte a continuación para obtener más detalles). ¡Necesitamos y queremos que nuestras familias trabajen con nosotros y continuaremos invitándolos a reuniones y eventos en Peachtree y esperamos verlos aquí!


Parte de la seguridad y la protección son los simulacros de seguridad, como los simulacros de encierro, simulacros de incendio y simulacros de tornado. La última semana de septiembre, realizaremos el primero de dos simulacros de encierro. Los oficiales de recursos escolares serán parte de este simulacro de ejercicio para garantizar que se sigan todas las medidas de seguridad. Lo alentamos a discutir este simulacro con anticipación con sus hijos. Recuérdeles que el propósito es garantizar que mantengamos seguras a todas las partes interesadas de nuestra escuela.
