Following the tragic events in Newtown, a rigorous School Security Audit of our four
schools was conducted last year in coordination with both the New Kent Sheriff’s Department and
the Virginia State Police. Based on the report generated by the audit, the New Kent County School
Board appropriated funds to purchase and install locked security doors, cameras, and software
which will enable each building to “buzz” parents and visitors in remotely. Included in this letter is
a description of the “protocol” for these security doors which will go into effect on Monday, March
This change is consistent with our ongoing efforts to secure access to our buildings
throughout the school day. I thank you for your consistent support as we continually work to
improve the safety and security of our students and families in our schools. Please contact your
student’s school directly with any specific questions regarding this secured entry system.
