  • Morning Drop-off Procedures - We are having some problems with our morning drop-off procedures. I am asking everyone to work together for the safety of our students. I have attached a map to help everyone understand how they should drop-off their children.

    I appreciate everyone's help with this.

    Greg Galtere, JHS West Principal 

    Morning Drop-off Procedures - Please enter through the entrance across from Boyertown Park. Drive all the way to the back parking lot, turn around and then drop your children off on the sidewalk. If your child is here for a study session, he or she can enter the building early through the 80s or 90s hallway entrance.We have a lot of traffic here in the morning during a small window of time. We appreciate everyone’s help in keeping our students safe.

    • Raptor System Update

      We are pleased to share that all Boyertown Area Schools have implemented the Raptor Identification System for the start of the 2014-2015 school year.  This system is located in each school office.  We will be requiring that all school visitors/ volunteers provide a driver’s license or other government-issued identification card and the visitor/volunteer will be able to proceed into the school as planned.  School staff will swipe the card to determine if the individual is a registered sex offender.  In most cases the system will issue a temporary ID badge to wear during a visit or volunteer activity.  If the system lists any offender information, the principal will intervene and the individual will not be permitted to enter the school outside of the school office area.  Individuals who need to drop off or pick up materials in the school office will not be required to use the system.  This system was identified as a safety improvement by our District and Building Safety Teams.  Through our successful application to the Safe Schools Grant, we obtained outside funding for all of this equipment.  Additional information on the Raptor System can be found on our District website at http://www.boyertownasd.org/domain/1179.  We thank all parents, guardians and visitors in advance for your cooperation as we implement this new system.  We are committed to continuing to provide a safe school environment for all students, staff and community members.
