Increasing the Safety at Roadrunner

posted Aug 25, 2017, 5:54 PM by Courtney Mallada

One of the most important goals we have at Roadrunner is to ensure the safety of our students. We have made it a priority to identify and implement practices that maintain a high level of safety in all areas.  In order to increase the safety of all of our students before school each morning, we will be implementing a "Roadrunner staff and students only" policy at the front gate beginning on Monday, August 28.  We appreciate the efforts of our wonderful Roadrunner families to assist students in becoming comfortable with our campus and the location of their classroom.  Beginning August 28, our staff and oldest students will assume this responsibility as students come through our gate in the morning.  

If parents or guardians need to enter campus to meet with a staff member before school, our office staff will be happy to assist.  Thank you in advance for your support of our desire to ensure the safety of our campus.
