Funded Projects

FOSTA funds new security doorknobs
In December, FOSTA funded new security doorknobs for the Upper School classroom doors. These new doorknobs allow for the doors to be quickly locked from the inside and are a major security improvement. 
Security Cameras

In October, FOSTA funded two exterior security cameras for the Lower School. These cameras help keep the parking lot secure during pick-up and drop-off.
