Dear Parents and Guardians,

In the wake of Sandy Hook and the recent incident at the Bryant School, we have reviewed our safety plan and district safety polices. As a result of the review we are implementing the following changes:

Effective immediately, all grade 5-8 students who have an early dismissal must be picked up by a parent.Please make sure that you have a photo ID to present to the office staff. No students will be released to other than a parent or guardian unless the person is on the emergency contact form and we have verified this arrangement.

All students, in gr. 5-12 must have a note that states the reason for the early dismissal, time, date and signature of a parent or guardian. All early dismissals will be permitted only at the discretion of the principal.

We are scanning all visitors to our building including parents.

This weekend, an intercom system will be installed on the 17th Street door, which will allow us to monitor entrance to the building at times when our School Police Officer is unavailable. Hopefully, it will be operational by Tuesday. Please be patient with us as we work with this new system.

Next week, we will be reviewing safety procedures with students.

I appreciate your understanding of the inconvenience that this extra security may create. We want to do our best to insure your children’s safety.
