Security in our schools. School Resource Officer

Please follow the following link to a Presentation on Security.  We will be providing the annual ALICE informational meeting for parents on Monday, March 19, 2018, at 6:30 in the Beverly High School auditorium.

This was presented by Officer Ed Hathon who is our School Resource Officer.  The students know Officer Ed from visits to their school.  A School Resource Officer is that person who the students know and feel comfortable asking questions or seeking help.  He is in uniform and drives a marked car so if you see a Police car in front of your school it may just be Officer Ed visiting classrooms or teachers.  He is also here to help with difficult situations with either adults or students that involve potential Police matters.  While he spends most of his time at the Middle and High Schools he is well known in our Elementary Schools.

Security PP

With regard to security for our children and staff we are constantly assessing and updating our training and response in our schools.  Our partnership with the Beverly Police and the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council are important partnerships to keep us current.  We also have staff at all levels that attend conferences each year to help us to constantly improve our practice.  

Digital Etiquette

The year is full of events and performances at the schools.  It is a time to enjoy the accomplishments of our students. Remember in this digital age there is Digital Etiquette to follow:

Digital etiquette maintains that someone who takes a picture/video should always ask the people in that picture/video for permission before posting it on the internet.   Parents often post pictures/videos from sporting events, recitals, birthday parties, and school functions online.  If those pictures/videos include other children, the parent needs to obtain permission from the parents of ALL students involved.  

We need families, teachers, and community members to be aware of this policy when they are at school events such as grade level programs, field day, field trips, and even when visiting our classrooms and cafeteria.  We have parents who prefer that their child's picture/video not be posted online.  If you take pictures please do not share them online without consent from the parents of students pictured.

This is not just a school issue.  It is a community issue, as we want all children to be both safe and respected.
