MULBERRY GROVE BOARD OF EDUCATION HEARS UPDATE ON SECURITY SYSTEM
Following discussions at the December Mulberry Grove Board of Education meeting concerning school security, a buzz-in system has been installed at the main high school and elementary entrances. Superintendent Mike Gauch told the board at Tuesday ’s meeting, persons entering the school must buzz the office and the secretary may see and talk with the person and let them in. The high school has been using the system which is functioning well. Final adjustments will be made next week to the system at the elementary. When all systems are operational, the district will contact parents concerning new procedures for entering the building during the school day.
Gauch reported no categorical state aid payments have been received. The board borrowed money for the transportation fund and will need to borrow again next month if state money is not received.
