Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you know, we continue to be conscientious and deliberate about improving and enhancing our support systems for safety, security, health, and wellness for all of our Rivendell schools. Each year we review our safety and security plans, we access our automated communication system to communicate quickly when necessary, and we implement safety drills. Also, every day we promote a respectful and safe school community through our work with students.

This year we are pleased to inform you of an additional safety and security measure we have taken. Like many schools, both in the local area as well as throughout the country, we have installed a locked door system for the primary doors at each of our schools. Following the entrance of students in the morning, these doors will be locked at 8:30 a.m. If you should need to enter the building after that time, you will need to request entrance through a simple "buzz in" system. You may be asked to identify yourself and to share the reason for entering. The doors will remain locked until approximately 2:45 p.m. and then will be opened for dismissal. We do not expect this to be difficult but do realize it is a change, thus, we want you to be informed.

Although we want to maintain a welcoming, friendly, school environment, especially for our parents, we need to be diligent about minimizing the risk regarding safety and security. Thank you for your support of this new procedure.
