NEW KEY PAD ENTRY SYSTEM ON JAPONICA 
We are excited about the additional security measures in place for the 2018-19 school year. We are now ready to begin using the key pad installed at our front entrance on the Japonica Campus. Each student has been assigned a PIN number that allows you access to the front door Monday-Friday 7:40 am-6:00pm. Your child's teacher will be emailing those codes to you. 

You will enter your pin followed by the # sign. The door will unlock and you may enter. It will automatically lock behind you after 30 seconds. If you forget or do not have a pin #, there is a call button and the front desk will respond. Thank you for your help as we increase our security efforts and transition to this new entry system.
