Safety Procedures

August 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we begin another fantastic school year, I want to take a few moments to remind you of a few basic safety tips.  Even in the best of circumstances, accidents can happen.  In addition, the daily news reports remind us of the fact that crime can happen anywhere at any time.  We as parents need to always be on alert and be prudent in our actions.  Please keep the following tips in mind:

  • Parking Lot Safety
  • Please drive slowly and carefully when you are in the parking lot.  Kids are everywhere.  Even with reminding, children can dart out in front of cars.  Once out of their cars, many kids put their ball on the pavement and start kicking it toward the fields, not looking for oncoming traffic.  Please do not let children run in between parked cars and keep them close at all times.  Be on alert for children coming from any direction while driving near the parking lot.   
  • Do not leave valuables in your parked car.  Cars are broken into at shopping malls, schools and in parking garages.  Assume that crime can happen anywhere at any time.  Protect your valuables.  Either do not leave them in your car, or hide them so they are not visible.  


    • Weather Safety
  • SCH officials will monitor the weather in the case of extreme weather.  Please have the most up-to-date phone numbers on record, so that you can receive all-calls from SCH. 


    • Building Safety
  • Please enter through Door A.
  • Check in at the Main Office with the secretary or office manager. 
  • Please sign in.
  • Allow the secretary or office manager to call down to the classroom before you walk down. Visits to the classroom must be made in advance with the classroom teacher. 

We're looking forward to a fantastic and fabulous school year.  I appreciate your attention to the precautions noted above.  I look forward to meeting you soon.

Thank you.

Ms. Harrison
