Beginning on Monday, January 5, the first day of school after the holiday break, the William Floyd School District will be implementing the next phase of its Perimeter Plan to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff. So far we have created a single point of entry at each school and a more controlled vestibule area in each school lobby.
The next phase is the implementation of the fencing, gates and security booths. School guests who arrive during the school day (after student arrival and before their dismissal) will be asked to stop at the gate and state the purpose of their visit to the security guard. The guard will then call the school office for verification and notification purposes. We understand that this may cause a slight inconvenience for our visitors, but it is for an important cause: the safety and security of our students and staff.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Over the last few months we have been implementing changes to all of our facilities. These changes included interior vestibules, fencing and new security protocols. As planned, security booths at designated entrances have begun to be installed today. It is our goal to have these booths operational in time for the opening of school in September 2014. We will be communicating additional changes and upgrades in our district‐wide security as they occur. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
As a follow up to the District’s previous communication regarding the school safety perimeter plan, we are in the process of implementing the next phase of construction. Starting this week and continuing during the upcoming break, construction of new interior walls will occur inside the main entrances of each school. This will not impact the school day or after school activities. Additionally, the security booths have been ordered and are expected to arrive in February. We will keep you informed as the security plans progress.
ORIGINAL MESSAGE 11/21/13
To ensure the safety of students and staff, the William Floyd School District is in the process of implementing a comprehensive school safety perimeter plan. The first phase includes the installation of additional fencing and gates throughout the district; the second phase includes the installation of security booths near each building’s front entrance, which is not expected to impact normal arrival and dismissal times. This project will be implemented over the course the next two school years. Additional updates and information for each building will be forthcoming
