Dear Preschool and/or KDO Parent:

In order to strengthen appropriate security for your child, the Cross Roads Preschool
Board, along with the entire Church, has been progressively increasing security
measures.

The first phase involved rekeying of the doors for better-controlled access to the building and specifically the Preschool wing. The second phase just finished, included the addition of a camera system that enables the directors and teachers to manage facility access through video surveillance monitoring. The next phase is an internal phone system that will allow better communication between the office and your child’s classroom as well as the entire building.
The final phase is a keypad entry system, that will allow access to the Preschool Hallway to only staff members during our hours of operation. In order to ensure the on-going maintenance of these systems, a $50.00 “Security Maintenance Fee” is added to your registration application and will be assessed annually per family. We thank you for your understanding and support as we take the necessary steps to enhance the children’s security and protection. (Additional contributions would certainly be welcomed to help offset this large capital expenditure.) Please feel free to contact our Preschool Director, Kelley Rupchak, with any questions or concerns. Many thanks for your continued support of our Preschool and Kids’ Day Out programs.

Best regards,
Cross Roads Preschool Board
