Our Internal Classroom Locks are Coming Over Spring Break!

THANK YOU – We did it!

For those parents who haven’t heard already, your signatures and voices have been heard by Tim White at Facilities. 

I submitted the e-petition with your signatures (181 signatures!) to BUSD and Facilities a couple of weeks ago and received a letter stating that the locks will be installed this Spring Break!

I would like to thank all of you who participated and added your signature and sent out the letters. 

We came to understand that these locks were a part of larger district plan that was approved that was supposed to take in effect starting in 2014. I’m happy to say that we gave them the necessary push to make this happen soon. A Special thanks to Marnie Ganotis who helped me write the petition and get them distributed. 

I would also like to thank Tej and Christine Sarkis and other parents and staff who have helped tremendously in making sure our emergency cache is well-organized and supplied and also in helping us get  ready for an Emergency. In talking with Mary, she feels Jefferson has really stepped up a lot at Emergency Preparedness and is proud of kids in handling all the drills and preparation necessary.  She appreciates that with our collective voice, she is now getting those calls from the district asking if Jefferson needs any additional support for emergency preparedness and she will continue in making sure our needs are met.

Thanks to all again.
