The PVHS PTO has approved a grant request from Mr. Speziale and the School Safety Committee for security upgrades to the PVHS Campus. The recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School has prompted a thorough analysis of our security measures. A major area of concern is the ability to lock the doors leading into the open pod areas. The doors leading into the pods currently have to be manually locked by a staff member in that area. The creates delays in lock down procedures and the possibility of unsecured doors due to a missing key or substitute teacher in place of the designated teacher. The school researched a mechanism that would automatically secure the pod doors remotely in case of emergency. It was costly but considered very necessary. At the request of the Safety Committee and Mr. Speziale, the PTO has funded
this additional security measure in order that it be implemented as soon as possible. More information will be available at the PTO General Meeting on February 19th at 6:30 PM in the school auditorium.
The PVHS PTO has also approved a grant for 13 I-Pad 2's for the ESE students. The I-Pads will be used for an intensive reading class twice/day as well as the intensive math and algebra classes. There are 12-13 students in the Reading Classes and 15-20 students in the math classes. The I-Pads can also be shared with the other ESE Math teacher for additional use. Additionally the I-Pads can be used as a study tool for those students struggling with the FCAT. The I-Pads were purchased at a discount price and the apps are free.
February 19 - General PTO Meeting, Auditorium, 6:30 PM - Mr. Speziale will speak about the Security upgrades for PVHS that are being funded by the PVHS PTO. We will also have LeAnne Daddario from the PACT Coalition. The PACT Coalition is an organization whose mission is to make St Johns County a healthy, substance-free community through the reduction and prevention of alcohol and drug abuse by our youth with Prevention, Advocacy, Choices and Teamwork.
