Safety

At Holy Name School, we ensure the safety and security of every person in our school community.

  • Three cameras, placed at entrances to the building, allow us to identify people before allowing them access to the school. A fourth camera is located in our computer room.
  • Dismissal procedures are carefully outlined in the student handbook on page seven. We release students in kindergarten through grade four only to an authorized adult. We allow students in grades five through eight, with parental permission, to walk home. We require that an authorized adult sign out all students who remain after school for either Homework Club or Extended Day.
  • Emergency drills for fire and lock downs are detailed in the student handbook on page 19. We practice these throughout the school year.
  • The school safety committee, comprised of parents, faculty, parishioners, school advisory members, and administration, meet at least three times a year to discuss, evaluate, and if necessary, make changes to existing safety procedures and policies.
  • Our most recent safety acquisition was door monitors for the pre-K classroom, which note those coming and going through the doorway.
