Provost Elementary School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We’re always seeking to improve student and school safety.  One of those changes to take place is securing the vestibules to better filter out potential threats and track visitors on our school grounds.  This phase of the security system is set to happen on October 1st.

Please be understanding and kind to our front desk staff as they begin to implement these changes.

What does this mean for me?

When entering the school grounds, prepare to stop in our secured vestibule before stopping by the front desk. Here’s what entering the school will look like:

Press the buzzer to alert our front desk personnel. Front desk staff will then find you on their direct camera footage of the vestibule.

The front desk staff will ask for your name and reason for visiting through the two-way speaker. After review/verification, the front desk will buzz you in. Head to the front desk for a visitor’s pass, and then you’re on your way.

We’ll send you a follow-up email a week before we secure our school’s vestibule, but we hope this helps you prepare for the slight transition, and we thank you for helping us keep your students as safe as we can.

Sincerely, Mrs. Alvarez, Principal

Nuevos procedimientos de seguridad en breve

Estimados padres y utores, Siempre buscamos mejorar la seguridad de los estudiantes y de la escuela. Uno de esos cambios que se llevarán a cabo es la seguridad de los vestíbulos para filtrar mejor las posibles amenazas y hacer un seguimiento de los visitantes en nuestro recinto escolar. Esta fase del sistema de seguridad está prevista para el 1 de octubre.

Por favor, sean comprensivos y amables con nuestro personal de recepción mientras comienzan a implementar estos cambios.

¿Qué significa esto para mí?

Al entrar en el recinto escolar, prepárese para detenerse en nuestro vestíbulo seguro antes de pasar por la recepción. Así es como se verá la entrada a la escuela: Pulse el imbre para avisar a nuestro personal de recepción.

El personal de recepción le encontrará en su cámara directa del vestíbulo. El personal de recepción le preguntará su nombre y el motivo de su visita a ravés del altavoz bidireccional. Una vez revisado/verificado, el personal de recepción le llamará para que entre. Diríjase a la recepción para obtener un pase de visitante, y ya está en camino.

Le enviaremos un correo electrónico de seguimiento una semana antes de que aseguremos el vestíbulo de nuestra escuela, pero esperamos que esto le ayude a prepararse para la ligera ransición, y le agradecemos que nos ayude a mantener a sus estudiantes an seguros como podamos.   Sinceramente, Sra. Álvarez, Directora
