My Students

My students are middle school students in a low income school district. All of the students in my school receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students are in a Pre-Algebra and Fundamentals of Algebra classroom.

Students from 3-8th grade are located in my building.

I would like to have a lock down security bar for my classroom to help secure the students safely inside the classroom in the event of a school lockdown. I believe classroom safety is very important and I want to provide my students with the best security I can.

My Project

I am simply asking for one item to make my classroom secure. My students and I would love to receive a barracuda lock down security bar for our classroom door.

This item will help secure my Mathematic classroom in a low ses school.

This device will help protect the 20-30 students that are in my classroom at a time.

The door on my classroom is an outward swing door which makes it difficult to barricade. The barracuda bar is made specifically for an outward swing door and prevents the door from being opened. Please help me protect my students in the event of an emergency.
