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.
