Dear Columbus Academy Families,
 
While working with our security consultants, we have resolved to practice varying levels of security adjustments throughout the school year that will be both noticeable and invisible to you as you enter and leave campus with your children.
 
Some of you may have noticed that we recently changed the position and number of our security guards from what may seem like a "normal" pattern of officer placement or activity. This is an effort to be random and to avoid an unintentional predictability of how we operate.
 
Please know that the school is committed to keeping you informed of security concerns, and we are not in a time of any additional concern other than our regular alert care of our students while they are on campus.
 
Our recent adjustments need to be unpredictable to be effective. The officers will give us help in understanding all sorts of patterns on campus, even traffic monitoring and issues that arise during dropoff and pickup.
 
As in all levels of security, we will be overt and covert in our adjustments. We thank you for letting us know when you notice the changes as well as trusting that the school will inform you of any security concerns of which you need to be made aware.
 
Sincerely,
 
Academy Seal
