Know Safety, No Injury

My students need an Intruder Defense System in order to keep us safe from intruders that might enter our building.

My Students

Each day my students come to school excited and ready to learn. My first graders are always excited about school and look forward to what they will be learning that day. Being safe isn't something they should have to worry about when they enter the doors of my classroom, but that has now become a reality and their safety is our #1 priority.

I have 21 high-spirited six and seven year old students in my first grade classroom every day!

My Project

While the subject of school safety is on the rise the Barracuda Intruder Defense System will be one thing to help keep my students safe in the event of an intruder in our building. The Barracuda is a quickly installed security device that can help protect the occupants of the room against any building intruder.

Our students need to know that they are safe if something like this were to happen.

With this tool, it will keep us one step closer to helping them have piece of mind. I hope that we will never have to use this piece but would love to be prepared just in case.
