1. Gated Perimeter with Controlled Access
Our campus is securely gated around the entire perimeter, ensuring controlled access. To enter our premises, a keycode is required, providing an additional layer of security. Additionally, those gates can be deadbolted in an emergency ensuring there is no chance of access. Our commitment to safety extends beyond the gate with the presence of exterior security cameras, monitoring activities in and around the school.
2. Fortified Classrooms for Enhanced Safety
Our classrooms are designed with safety in mind. The concrete block walls and reinforced windows offer protection from external elements. All classroom doors can be swiftly locked from the inside, ensuring the safety of students and staff. The classroom floors feature hardwood vinyl with padding underneath to prevent injuries from falls. All furniture boasts rounded corners to minimize the risk of injuries.
3. Controlled Access With Multiple Points of Egress
Our classrooms open into a secure courtyard, providing an additional layer of protection. Staff members maintain a clear view of anyone entering or leaving through the single point of entry gate, which requires a keycode for access. This gate is equipped with motion sensors, alerting our Directors of any unusual activity outside of regular drop-off and pickup times. Additionally, our school enjoys a strong presence from the community, including families using the nearby dog park and police officers who frequent our parking lot for various activities. While we have a single point of entry, it’s important to note that we also maintain multiple points of egress for safety and convenience.
4. Rule Adherence and Safety Education
We take safety seriously and work closely with our students to ensure they understand and adhere to safety-related rules. When safety-related rules are disobeyed, we engage in serious discussions with students to emphasize the importance of following these guidelines.
5. Highly Trained Staff and Rapid Emergency Response
All our staff members are CPR and First Aid certified, exceeding state requirements. Additionally, many of our staff members have received specialized medical training, including Stop the Bleed, choking response, and self-defense techniques. Our school is equipped with extensive first aid tools that go beyond the state’s minimum requirements.
To further enhance safety, our teachers have access to a radio system that allows them to alert the entire school from anywhere on campus. In case of an emergency, an emergency alarm can be triggered to inform all staff members. We have strategically placed five locations across our campus that can auto-dial emergency services, ensuring rapid response times of under 3 minutes. Moreover, we maintain a regular police presence on campus, as our parking lot is used by the Police Department for various activities.
