Principal’s Message

In light of the recent events around the country, I want to let you know that we are continuing to implement and revise our School Safety Plan to keep our school, children and our staff safe.  As a part of our on-going plan, we installed Loc-Blocks on all classroom doors. These devices allow teachers to keep their doors locked at all times, but propped slightly open so students can enter. In the event of an emergency, the door can be completely locked in a few seconds, without having to look for a key. Each month we hold an emergency drill for students and staff. The drills include fire drills, earthquake drills, and lockdown drills. We have a written protocol, developed with the police departments that serve PYLUSD, for three levels of lockdown readiness. The detailed protocol is attached. District-wide, we are improving outside lighting, and developing uniform visitor procedures that will include uniform badging and sign-in for visitors, plus procedures for screening volunteers.

On a daily basis, we monitor traffic safety at drop-off and pick-up times. For our traffic to flow smoothly, it is important that no one stops in traffic lanes to let children in or out of vehicles. Always park in a legal parking place, or use the drop off/pick up lane. Please do not park in front of fire hydrants, driveways, or red zones. Note that the curbs on both sides of the cross walk are painted red to increase the safety zone. I believe that by paying attention to details we can all help keep our children safe.
