VISITORS TO THE SCHOOL
To help ensure the safety of all our students, all outside doors will be locked during the school day. Visitors are required to use the front door that is equipped with a buzzer. All visitors must check in at the main office, present a valid form of government-issued identification, sign in, and wear a visitor’s badge at all times while in the building. They must then sign out and return their badge prior to leaving. Visitors will be admitted to the building at the sole discretion of school administrators.
State law requires that we hold supervised drills (evacuation, fire, lockdown, bus evacuation, shelter in place, etc.) each year under the direction of the Salem Fire Department and the Salem Police Department. Procedures for these drills are reviewed with the children throughout the school year. More information about ALICE drills can be found here.
CORI AND FINGERPRINT-BASED CHECKS
All volunteers are required to complete a CORI background check each year. With regard to CORI, you must apply in person to the school office and present photo identification.
