Indian Community School Safety/Securtity Updates


Main Entrance Locked Effective 6.16.14

Based on responses to survey information collected from stakeholders (parents/guardians, staff, students, and community members) as part of our AdvancED accreditation process, we are updating some of our Safety procedures.

Please note that as part of our Safety updates, the Main Entrance will be locked during school hours/certain summer hours effective Monday 6.16.14.

Summer Hours when the entrance will not be locked:

During K4 Summer School the Main Entrance will be unlocked: 8-8:45 am & 12-12:45 pm.

Please note that during the July Summer Program, the Main Entrance will remain locked as they use the Gym Entrance for drop off and pick up.

When the doors are locked, all visitors will be asked to 'buzz in' or use the CALL BOX to identify themselves. Please speak loudly and clearly into the box.

Once you enter, whether the doors are locked or not, all visitors will continue to be asked to go to the front desk to sign in.

2014-2015 School Year

When school begins for the 2014-2015 School Year, the Main Entrance doors will be unlocked to faciliate busses unloading at the beginning of the day and loading at the end of the day. Any updates will be provided throughout the summer regarding this.

Yaw^ko in advance for your support and patience as we launch this new safety procedure. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
