Dear Parent:

Unfortunately, the times in which we live dictate the need for a comprehensive resetting of our school security protocols.

To that end, please note that beginning January 4, 2016, the following security protocols will be in effect: Note: Some of these protocols have already been in place but may not have been enforced as aggressively as they should have been; others are new protocols.

• Any parent/guardian/guest, etc. may only enter the building through the main entrance (Lincoln Avenue)

• Any parent/guardian/guest, etc. must report to the main office, sign in, and wear a destination specific badge, i.e., the exact destination location will be written by the office staff on the badge

• If a parent/guardian/guest, etc. wishes to go to more than one destination, they must return to the office for a new badge

• When exiting the building parent/guardian/guest, etc., must sign out

• No cars will be permitted to enter the driveway when admissions/dismissals are taking place

In addition, parents/guardian/guests, etc. should review these additional protocols are taking place:

• All school doors will be secured from the inside; however, all doors will be set to allow easy egress to the outside

• No parents/guardians of any student will be permitted to accompany students to the gym on indoor admission days. Members of our Student Council and National Junior Honor Society will be available to assist younger students in finding their way to the gym

• Students will be reminded never to open an exterior door for anyone including parents, teachers, and administrators

We appreciate your cooperation in the above matters as our major concern is always the safety and welfare of our children and staff. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact my office at 856-783-4763 ext. 825.


Warren L. Pross Superintendent
