Thanks to our community’s support of the May 2012 bond proposal, every school building in the district will have a secure vestibule by the start of the 2013-14 school year. The vestibules ensure that any visitors to our school buildings during the day enter and exit through the main office, where they are required to sign-in.
The 2012 bond proposal also played a key role in the installation of new door and hardware packages around the exterior of Gull Lake Middle School. Old doors were upgraded, with improved locking mechanisms and new electronic key card access.
Finally, thorough facility walk-throughs have been conducted in each district building under the supervision of the district’s Safety Committee and local law enforcement. The walk-throughs have drastically improved staff awareness of ensuring interior classroom doors are locked during the school day, in the event of an emergency. The walk-throughs have also helped building administrators ensure that all exterior doors are locked and secured at all times during school hours.
