School safety continues to be an important topic. We held our lock-down with state police, district officials, New Holland Police, and
East Earl Police all in attendance. They walked through the building during the lock-down and gave us feedback regarding procedures in place. We are continuing to teach and practice safety procedures with all our students. We will hold additional lock-down drills this school year. This month, we will participate with schools all across the state in a severe weather drill.
Additionally, we are asking that you send in a dated note when your child is not following normal dismissal procedures, i.e. car rider,
picking up early for an appointment. Please include the full name of the individual who will be picking up your child. If we do not receive a note, your child will be expected to follow his/her normal routine. We understand that sometimes plans change at the last minute so if you need to pick up your child and did not know before school, please call the office no later than 2:45. It can get very busy at the end of the day and we want to ensure that we have notified your child and his/her teacher of the change in a timely manner.
You will also note that we have changed entry procedures. Currently, the district procedure is for you to enter the main school doors and
then buzz-in at the office. Please do not enter the building with your child through the parent drop-off doors. If you need to come in with your child, you need to enter through the office, sign-in and receive a visitor/volunteer pass. We appreciate your involvement at school.
