All staff members wear photo ID badges. All visitors must sign in and wear name badges. When the school opens at 7:30 am, staff members are in front of the school, in the auditorium, and in the cafeteria to oversee the students. Staff and the third grade ambassadors assist with school arrivals and departures. Other doors to the building are kept closed and locked at all times.
Once the school day begins, the front doors are locked and can only be opened by staff in the front office, where we can clearly view whomever is requesting to enter the building. Additionally, we are a close-knit and friendly community; so if anyone sees something of concern or feels there is a problem, immediately report it to the office. We all watch out for each other's safety. Periodically throughout the school year, students will experience both fire drills, severe weather drills and lockdown drills to practice all safety and security procedures.
