AS YOU ARE AWARE THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR COMMITMENT, YOU WILL NOW FIND THE DOORS TO ALL OF OUR SCHOOL FACILITIES LOCKED DURING THE SCHOOL DAY. WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS AN INTERCOM/VIDEO MONITOR SYSTEM THAT WILL ENABLE US TO PROVIDE TIMELY ACCESS TO THE BUILDINGS. IN THE MEANTIME WE WILL RELY UPON YOUR PATIENCE AS YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO KNOCK ON THE DOOR OR PUSH A DOORBELL. WHEN YOU DO ENTER OUR SCHOOLS YOU MAY ALSO BE REQUIRED TO SIGN IN AND WEAR A VISITOR PASS. WE APPRECIATE BOTH YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING AS WE ENACT THESE PROCEDURES.THESE MEASURES ARE NOT DESIGNED TO INHIBIT YOUR ACCESS….THEY ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A SAFE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR ALL OF OUR STUDENTS.
Federal regulations require school districts to have a food procurement policy for food purchases. The policy must contain both a debarment clause and a standards of conduct clause. With this being a new policy, it is being presented as an information item at the January 21st board meeting and the first reading was at the February 26th board meeting. The second reading will be at our next board meeting on March 20th. A copy of the policy is available on the District website by clicking here or by contacting the superintendent's office.
