Safety & Security Updates

Dear Parents

In regard to safety and security, I thought I would give you an update on what the district is currently doing and the plans being implemented this summer and fall.

To begin, because of the half day of school on May 10, our entire staff was able to spend three full hours training with the Morrow County Sheriff’s Department. The focus was on what to do if we have an intruder on campus. The next training step will be to have a “test drill” - much like a fire drill - to help students understand what to do if we did have an intruder on campus. This drill will take place in a week or two.

As a follow up to these trainings, we will have an organized training drill in Ione this fall much like the Boardman training that happened a few weeks ago, but on a smaller scale. At that time, we will give parents and students the option to “volunteer” to be here during the “live” training.

You should also be aware that over the summer, our camera and security system will undergo a HUGE $56,000 upgrade thanks to grants from the Morrow County Education Foundation, the Ione Education Foundation, and the Ione Community Agri-Business Organization (ICABO). We will have approximately four times the camera coverage and capacity we currently have. This camera and security system allows Law Enforcement access 24/7 and helps them to quickly monitor and assess what is happening in real time in the event of an emergency.

I hope this update keeps you aware of what the Ione School District is actively doing to help insure our students, our staff, and our community are protected. If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by my office or call me at 541-422-7131

Sincerely
Rollie Marshall, Principal
