Dear Parents/Guardians: 


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 

17, 2014. 


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. 




 Robert F. Richardson, Jr., Ed.D.
