Enhanced School Safety
Our #1 goal is to make Dillon a safe environment for our students and staff. After reviewing our safety procedures with community members and District 13 staff, it became obvious that our procedure for accessing students and staff needed to be enhanced.
Beginning this year, Dillon will have all visitors enter the building through the main office. There you will need to present your current state ID that will be entered into the Raptor system, a visitor management system, which will provide a badge for you to wear allowing you to enter the building. Unfortunately, parents/guardians will no longer be allowed to enter the building before school with their child unless going through the main office check in procedure.
Some other procedures that can be shared that have been put in place to help make Dillon and District 13 a safe place for everyone: Staff and students will be incorporating ALiCE training when handling a threat of an aggressive intruder. Main doors will have Keyless Access Control. Kids Club moved to a room that has an exterior door allowing ALL doors to remain locked at all times. All adults, staff and visitors, will wear an ID while in the building. District 13 will have a School Resource Officer (SRO), Officer Jarret Ludwig.
Thank you and please feel free to share any ideas or suggestions you may have to help improve the safety of our schools.
