As the school year begins, we want to make clear that the safety of students and staff and the security of our campus is the main concern of the security team. We, along with the our School Resource Officer, work hard to ensure that our students and staff are safe and comfortable while here on campus. To meet these challenges of a safe campus, we ask for the assistance of students, staff, and parents. If any one of you feels that something needs to be addressed, please bring it to the attention of the Security staff as soon as possible. The office is located near the Main Office.
