Scanning September 20, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment for all students in
our school. The NYPD’s School Safety Division has assisted us in achieving this goal and in
implementing a coordinated approach to school safety. As part of the safety initiative for New
York City schools, on some days students will be required to go through metal scanning
machines like the kind used to screen airline passengers for the purpose of detecting
weapons. These scanning devices, deployed by the NYPD’s School Safety Division, will
identify not only weapons but other objects that are never permitted in our building and will help
us to keep everyone safe in our school.

As you know, there are items that students are prohibited from bringing to school. These
items listed in the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning (Discipline
Code) include but are not limited to blades, knives, other sharp metal instruments, etc. Students
who bring these items to school may be subject to disciplinary measures. Procedures for use of
scanning devices in our school are contained in Chancellor’s Regulation A-432 on Search and
Seizure which is available on the Department of Education’s
Website www.schools.nyc.gov. You can also request a copy from my office. We recommend
that you review the Discipline Code with your child to become familiar with what items are
prohibited in schools.

The scanning machines will not be at our schools every day, but students must be
prepared every day to successfully pass through scanners. Students must have their student
backpacks, as well as all metal objects (keys, belts. coins, jewelry, etc.), will go through the
scanner. So if students place all metal objects in their backpack before reaching the scanner, this
will help the line to move quickly. Students who are not properly prepared for scanning may be
required to go through a second, hand-held scan that may delay their arrival to their first class.
I hope that students will be attentive and follow instructions from all School Safety
Agents and school staff and be sensitive to other students waiting to be scanned to enter the
building. We will be reviewing details on the scanning process with your child in school this
week.

I need your support in making this safety measure successful. Please discuss this safety
procedure with your child. They must leave prohibited items at home, go quickly through
scanning, and enter the building on time in the morning. I know that your child’s safety is your
number one concern. We are doing everything possible to ensure that all students have a safe
learning environment in which they can achieve their full potential.
I am confident that this additional security resource will enhance the safety of everyone
in our community. If you have questions regarding the policies and procedures on scanning,
please don’t hesitate to call us.
I thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

Jessica Jackson
Principal
