Secure Campus Update

Hello Fern Families!


Today, our temporary fence went in to the field, making campus inaccessible from the field side. With that, September 4th, we will begin our new procedures for a closed, secure campus.


At 8:00am, three gates will open for student drop off.   The double gate by the wheelchair ramp off Fern Drive next to the library, the gate in between kindergarten classrooms and the main gate in our center breezeway (in between rooms 2 and 3) will open for drop off.  We ask that anyone coming to the campus wait at our quad area at the front of the school – in front of the office – until 8:00am – this is when our Falcon families can all enter our campus.


After the 8:30 bell rings, all of the gates will be locked.  All entry to Fern Drive must be made through the office.



TK – no changes.  Students dismissed from the front of campus at their classrooms.


Kinder – New procedure: Please pick up ALL kinder students from the front of the campus by the quad area in front of the office. This is due to the gate on Fern Drive being locked at 2:30.


Grades  1 – 3.  No changes - teachers will continue to bring students to the front of the school, using the side gates by room 15 and the main breezeway gate in between rooms 2 and 3.


Grades 4 -  6 – No changes  - teachers will continue to dismiss students from the Fern Drive of campus using the double gates next to the MPR  and the gates next  to the wheelchair ramps.


Any parents using TheLAB will receive a separate communication regarding drop off and pick up procedures.


We know this is a new procedure and we thank you for your support – having a secure campus ensures that only those checked in through the office with their appropriate credentials are here.
