Jordan School District Safety Letter

The following is information that was released by the Jordan School District:

December 18, 2012
Dear Parents,
We regard the safety of your children as our top priority in Jordan School District. The
horrific events in Connecticut on December 14 have put a spotlight on the devotion,
commitment and love that teachers and educators have for the precious children in their
care. In a crisis, these brave educators put the safety of the children above their own.
Likewise, it has brought into sharper focus school building security. Our schools are held
to a higher standard for safety and security and therefore need to be safe places for
children to learn. Because of this, Jordan School District trains its entire staff and works
closely with each municipality and each law enforcement agency so the safety of your
children will always be our first priority.
Jordan School District has consistently reinforced the safety of our students, staff and
patrons. All of our schools benefit from special equipment and procedures, specifically
designed to maximize safety and minimize the impacts of accidents, natural disasters and
unwelcome intruders. We understand that no public place is immune from accident or
harmful intrusion. However, we have observed the benefits of correct emergency
preparedness and routine practice of safe school procedures.
All District schools are equipped with card access technology, security cameras and
lockdown and incident command systems, along with many other precautions and
procedures. All employees are required to wear District ID badges and are trained to
intervene with any visitor not wearing proper identification. In addition, students and
staff participate with first responders in monthly drills to prepare for a variety of
emergencies. In the case of a school emergency, our local police and fire professionals
are prepared to respond.
In light of recent events, we will further review procedures currently in place and
consider any changes that can augment student safety. If your child is having difficulty
coping with the recent tragic events, counselors are available at every school.
Please know that Jordan School District and the caring, compassionate educators in our
schools work hard to ensure a safe learning environment for every child, every day.
Patrice A. Johnson, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
Jordan School District

USDA to allow more meat, grains in school lunches

We know from personal experience that the kids have not been getting enough to eat at school.  This has been a top issue with the PTA here in Utah.  We are very excited to see that the USDA has heard and is going to increase the foods allowed.  Please see the below link for full details!
