Follow up on the digital citizenship and school safety plans

  • Teachers really like Blocksi, it sends notifications to the principal immediately. It has already been a useful tool at the school.
  • Bark 
  • District will be installing new doors in the whole school with large rectangular windows and new handles. The window provides safety for students and staff. The question was raised about having the windows covered in lockdown situations. Discussed possible drop down shades made of fabric. 
  •  Practice lockdown drills with Police Officers. January 18,2024.


Discuss child access routing plan and prepare recommendations as applicable

  • Cones are being placed out along the curb to keep people from parking on the red painted curbs. Mr. Fazzio has been standing in the crosswalk with a vest, helping students safely cross the road. It was determined that the road isn’t busy enough to justify hiring a crossing guard for that specific crosswalk. Mrs. Vorwaller mentioned that the resource officer has said parents have become belligerent with him when he has asked them to move their cars. 
  •  Putting cones on the red curb where kids are crossing seems to help.
  • Discussed putting kids in vests helping move traffic. Putting kids in leadership roles. Leader in Me.
  • Mindfulness and movement starting up again. Rewarding students who are on task and aren’t always recognized.
