We have begun implementing physical safety measures to off set any ‘acts of terror’.
- Training regarding emergency evacuation; limited access and locked doors; identifying potential threats; and specific training that includes those among us who legally carry weapons for protection if needs arise.
- Security cameras are being installed in appropriate locations. Everyone who works with children in Nursery care through 17 years of age must submit a New York State background check. (Background Check can be done here)
This is mandatory with no exceptions.
In addition, also mandatory is participation in an annual training for Abuse and/or Neglect awareness, prevention, and reporting program.
The seminar video can be viewed here:
The notes are here below:
Upon completion of the training, the following document is signed by each participant:
Your ministry team leader will go over all of this with you and let the office know when you have completed all tasks. Thanks.
