Security Measures Update


Abrams has reached out to other day schools and public schools to discuss their security programs, and we have met with two independent consultants about performing a new security assessment for Abrams. We are currently waiting to hear from one more possible provider and will make a decision shortly. The security issue will be discussed at the board meeting on Wednesday, January 14, 2015, and we will keep our families informed as decisions are made.

Be assured that our children’s safety is of paramount importance to Abrams, and we do have a security plan already in place. We will continue to do everything possible to ensure that our school is as safe as we can possibly make it, including implementing enhancements if necessary.

Safety and Security Reminders


Just a reminder of AHA security procedures:

  • All parents should use the front door to enter the school with key cards and not the back doors. Parent swipe cards only work at front door.
  • Please do not ask students to open any doors- parents must report to the front office and check-in before entering the school.
  • No student or other person should use the lunchroom doors other than for dismissal or emergency purposes.

These rules are for our children’s safety.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Car Pool Rules 

All Parents who Car Pool:


Please note that the car pool line is for grades N and K only. All other students are to be dropped off in the front of the building.


Parents who use the back for drop off should follow the directions of the teachers in the parking lot. They are there to assist students and maintain a safe environment.  


Under no circumstances are parents to park their cars in the middle of the line and leave them unattended to walk students into the building.  


** We ask that parents refrain from cellphone use in the parking areas while dropping off and picking up their children.

Abrams Notes

Birthday Celebrations at School

In order to maintain a consistent kashrut policy and to avoid confusion, ALL orders for birthday cakes/cupcakes MUST be ordered from Cramer’s Bakery, 16 E. Afton Avenue, Yardley. Cramer’s will deliver the order to the school at a discounted price.

Please call Kim Pierce at 215-321-5707 to place your cake/ cupcake order.
