I am the librarian in a low-income/high poverty school distrct and my students are faced with several challenge both in and out of the classroom. Despite the daily challenges, my students rock! They are highly motivated, active, full of personality and LOVE to read.
From the monent the kids walk into our school doors, they are busy learning, creating, and reading.
We strive to make them feel welcome and loved. It is our goal to help every child find their highest potential.
Due to recent events in our country, safety in schools has become a great concern. Our school is no exception. If a child does not feel safe in their environment, they cannot successfully learn.
Safety now has to become our number one priority before learning can occur.
Although our classroom doors do lock, the Barracuda Scissor Locks would enable us to further protect our staff and students by not allowing the hinges on our doors to open from the outside. It also allows the door to be secured from inside the classroom very quickly in an emergency situation. It is a very inconspicuous device and will not draw attention to our classrom while in a lock down situation.
I am asking to purchase these locks for our entire Unified Arts department (Art, Library, and Physical Education). Many students and parents have been inquiring as to our emergency procedures to ensue their child's safety. We would love to be able to proudly say: our procedures have been put into place and we have the most secure rooms for their children!
