Mr. Proffer: Feedback is good.  Safety- doors locked once school has started.  Visible ID when on school grounds.  You need either a staff badge, volunteer badge, or Weber School District insignia on shirt. ALWAYS check in the office.  Those who aren't established with staff will be asked for ID until this has been established (know who you are).  For those who are not on the emergency contact list, they WILL NOT give any information over the phone.  There is plenty of supervision.  Approved by guardian to have access to students.  There are 18 cameras and footage is kept for about a month.  Take into account all threats and media information.  We check the sources.  If you see anything that seems a threat or dangerous call 911.  Tell staff.  Adult needs to come to sidewalk to pick up kids.  They WILL NOT be allowed to walk to the parking lot without an adult.  Teach kids to avoid questionable situations.  Lockout-something outside of school.  Example a big dog outside.  Lockdown- imminate danger. Teachers who need help can page office.  Administrators, office and play ground aides all have walkie talkies.  Coat hooks- there will be plenty of them.  They will be in place soon.  They will all be out in the hallway.
Other: Red ribbon week Oct 23rd to Oct 31st.  Video for assembly.  YOLO: You Only Live Once is the theme this year.  Pledge on a banner or poster for each grade to hang up.
