  • School Security

    Posted by Karen Slusark on 5/10/2018

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    As the district moves forward with increasing the security of our school buildings, I would like to bring to your attention a new protocol we will be implementing at all of our schools.

    Starting Friday, May 11, 2018, bins will be placed outside each school for parents to drop items off for their child.  Please use the intercom to notify the main office that you placed an item in the bin and be sure to have your child’s first and last name on the item.  The school staff will retrieve the item and give it to your child in a timely manner.

    Continuing the protocols already in place, you will be expected to present a form of photo identification when entering the building.  We ask that you do not hold the door open for any other visitors; each visitor must ring the main office for entry. Additionally, all visitors will be required to answer the following questions when ringing the main office:

    • Your name;
    • Whom you are here to see;
    • Purpose of your visit; and
    • If you are expected.

    We thank you for your cooperation to help us improve the safety and security of the students and staff in our buildings.

    Should you have any questions, please contact the main office of your child’s school.

    Sincerely,

     

    Jeanne Howe
    Superintendent of Schools

Referendum Updates

  • The district would once again like to thank the Jefferson Township Community for their support of our Bond Referendum vote back in October 2018.  The district was able to receive 40% reimbursement from the State in grant money. Fortunately, when our credit history was reviewed by the financial institutions providing the bonds, we were able to secure loans at the rate of 3.62% which is lower than expected.

    Although it is a smaller-scale project, we are excited that the work has started!   The door locks are being replaced at Cozy Lake by Oak Security. The new locks will have a thumb lock for enhanced security and will be ADA compliant.  

    The other projects slated to occur this summer are:

    • High School Roof replacement;
    • High School Science Room Renovations;
    • Middle School Classroom Renovations;
    • Middle School Locker Room Renovations;
    • Creation of makerspace classrooms in Briggs, Cozy Lake, Stanlick, White Rock, JTMS & JTHS;
    • Various flooring projects throughout the district; and
    • Exterior Building Facade repairs at Briggs, Cozy Lake & JTHS.
