    A message from Cedaroak Park Principal Carolyn Miller:

     

    As you know, we have been reviewing safety and security practices in all district schools. At Cedaroak, this has meant changing our dismissal practices and additional supervision. We have so appreciated everyone's support in these important security practices! We are also excited to share that we are in the design process for improving our building security. While we love the open style of our school, it is challenging to monitor young children as they navigate from one section of the building to another. To address this challenge, our district, through Bond funds, will be redesigning our space so that students can navigate independently and safely. We anticipate using a combination of brick that matches the outside of our building, wrought-iron style fencing, and plantings to "enclose" our courtyard spaces while maintaining an open, natural feel. While we don't have design plans yet to share, once we do they will be posted for everyone to see.
