SRO - Campus Security
What do I do if I am caught in traffic and going to be late picking up my child?
Per school policy, all students not picked up by 3:15pm must be directly supervised by an adult. If you are caught in traffic and will not be on campus by 3:15pm, please contact Ms. Vicki Martin at 770-957-2927 and notify her of your situation. Any student found without adult supervision and without notification of the parent to the school, will be escorted to the ASEP and given an automatic detention.
When are the doors locked during the school day?
For security purposes, doors are locked at 7:55am each school day. In the afternoon, doors are unlocked from 3:00pm until 3:15pm for pickup. Any parents planning to remain in the building anytime after 7:55am and before 3:00pm must sign in at the receptionist's desk and wear a Visitor's badge.
How does the school prepare for emergency situations?
All ELCA employees are trained in Emergency Protocol at the beginning of the school year. During the year, students and staff participate in drills to ensure that everyone is familiar with procedures. In the event of any major incident, parents will be notified via their child's teacher of the situation as well as of any instructions regarding their child.
Does ELCA do K-9 searches?
ELCA is in a rotation with the other county schools and is visited by the Henry County Sheriff's Department on a periodic basis to do K-9 searches. The SRO or a school administrator is present during this search. For the safety of the students, no students are present in the hallways or parking lots during the searches. During a search, if the K-9 alerts on a vehicle, the parent of the owner will be notified of the alert and the intention of the school administration to search the vehicle. Parent will be asked permission to search the vehicle. If consent is not given, administration will decide the course of action to take on a case by case basis.
