K280 has security located at each entrance and we are inquiring about additional security for safety reasons as our population increases. All doors other than the main entrances/exits are alarmed and will go off if opened. Administration and staff can be seen throughout the building ensuring the safety of students, teachers and all staff. Please note as a security measure for all of our students that ANY ADULT entering the building must have their ID. In the 2019-2020 school year, K280 will be issuing family ID cards as an added security measure and that will replace having to use your State ID.
Please do have your ID out and ready when you enter the building in order to expedite the process. Additionally, all staff is trained in lockdown procedures and we conduct drills throughout the year in order to prepare for any scenario.

Classrooms are only designated ‘nut free’ if a child is found to have a severe allergies to nuts. A severe allergy is one designated as sensitivity to environmental contact with tree nuts/peanuts as opposed to one that involves ingestion. As families do have the option to pack lunches for their children and there is a strict policy on no sharing of snack/lunch items between students, we will allow students in the class to pack lunches containing peanut butter or other tree-nut related items in any classroom not designated ‘nut free’. Staff members are alerted to any allergies that students may have and a list is posted in the office as well as with the Parent Coordinator and nurse. Additionally any teacher who has a student with food allergies will receive training in Epipen administration.
When you register for K280, if your child has an allergy of any kind, please contact our 504 coordinator Sandra Fajgier at Sfajgier@ps10.org to learn more about allergy safety at K280 and the different options available to you.
