Safe Schools – Name Tags and Keys

In October 2008, Phyllis Hili, Superintendent of Education, issued a memorandum numbered 2008-2009: 87


Thank you all for your work to date on the implementation of our Safe School Policies and Guidelines. In order for consistency, please ensure that the following practices are in place.


All members have a name tag/FOB that is linked to the call out system. If you’ve accepted an assignment, your fob will work at that school for that day.

Classroom Keys and School Information for Occasional Teachers

Classroom keys are to be provided by school administrators for occasional teachers so they are able to lock their classroom doors during Code Red.   In addition, please ensure that school information is also provided for our occasional teachers. If you are not receiving a key at any assignment, please contact the office and we will contact the board to ensure there are enough keys at every school. This is part of the central agreement language and is your right!

You as the classroom teacher are responsible for the safety of your students, make sure you are issued your keys!

If you have any questions, please contact your Superintendent of Education.
