Principal's News
By Scott Lay   

The first trimester has almost come to an end meaning we are nearly 1/3rd of the way through the year! Check in with your students to see if they have any long term projects that are due before the trimester ends on November 14th. The first trimester awards will be held December 5th.


 Attached to this newsletter is the Parent School Climate Survey. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and helps guide our school policies on school culture and climate. It is voluntary and we appreciate your time to complete it. If you have any questions about the survey, please stop by my office or call me at 273-3664 x203.


 The last item I wanted to touch on is campus security and what we do to prepare for a critical event on campus. At the Superintendent/Principal level, I meet with local law enforcement officials and other school representatives once a month to go over current events in our area that could affect schools. I have also worked with the new Superintendent of Schools safety coordinator to update our comprehensive safety plan that includes intruders, earthquakes, fire, and other events. At the school level, we practice our earthquake and fire drills as well as intruder drills 3-4 times a year with the students. Each drill has a different scenario so we donít get complacent. All the classrooms and the gym have locking systems on their doors that can be activated in an instant and they can also be used by students. We also have back up communication systems in all rooms. To monitor visitors, we ask that anyone going into a classroom or working on campus check in at the office and wear our visitor badges so staff know they are on campus with our knowledge. If you ever have any questions regarding security and drills, please stop by and ask me.
