1). Effective immediately ALL parents, volunteers, and visitors MUST STOP and sign in at the office before proceeding to any area of the school. This restricted access to our school property and facility is critical for the safety of our students and staff. Staff throughout the school will be looking for the pink sign-in tags on any non-staff adult at the school. If you are not wearing a pink name tag, expect that a staff member will address you and ask that you return to the office to sign in. We know this will take some time adjusting, but remember it is for the safety of all at Rolling Hills that we sign in.
- Parents that drop off your child and walk them to the back of the school for morning recess, will now need to come to the office to sign in and get a pass to continue to the back of the school.
- Volunteers must sign in each time you are coming in to help.
- Coming to classroom events, parties, classroom presentations, meetings, will require a STOP and sign in at the office before you proceed to any area of the school. Please give yourself a few extra minutes to get to your activity on time.
- Just dropping something off for your child? We are happy to help…please leave your item at the front desk for prompt delivery by office staff. If you need to see your child along with dropping off the item for them, you will need to sign-in as a visitor before proceeding to your child’s classroom.
2). Lock Down Practice
- School Safety Assembly Tuesday, March 20 at 2:00 p.m. in the gym (ALL students & staff to attend). At this assembly, our School Resource Officer (SRO), from the Boise Police Department will be discussing the details of the Hide/Fight protocols in preparation of a practice lock down later in the week. Interested parents are invited to attend the assembly (be sure to give yourself enough time to sign in!).
- Lockdown Drill on Thursday, March 22 @ 12:00 pm. We will be having a lock down drill at the school, under the direction of the Boise Police Department. This will help staff, students, volunteers, parents, and police to practice on site the lock down procedures and Hide/Fight protocols. We invite you to come and join in the drill with your child. If you will be attending, please arrive 30 minutes earlier at 11:30 am and be sure to sign in.
The learning, planning, and practice of emergency drills are a normal part of school life. We are going to use this practice as a learning experience to help us keep your child safe while they are in our care at school.
**The RHPCS safety committee is made up of our parents, teachers, and administrator. You are invited to join the safety committee meetings. The Safety Committee meets monthly (First Monday of the month @ 2:45 pm) to discuss the safety of students while here at school. Topics from these meetings then get implemented, based on sound judgement and our partnership with our SRO from the Boise Police Department.
Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.
