EISD outlines new safety policies

In a letter to parents and guardians this week, Ennis ISD Superintendent John Chapman outlined some new safety measures that will be implemented in the 2018-19 school year, while others go into effect immediately. “Districts across the region are receiving threats on their schools,” Chapman said. “A majority of those threats have no merit. Ennis ISD has not been an exception and we are putting additional procedures in place now, and even more before the start of next school year.” In the letter Chapman said some of the procedures will more than likely cause an inconvenience, but “heightened security is not a convenience.” “Starting now we will randomly pick EJHS and EHS students to search through their backpacks,” Chapman said. “Please know we are doing this in the best interest of all students. If your child gets chosen, please have them comply with the administration and officers.” In other efforts EISD is asking all staff and visitors to park away from buildings. The district will no longer allow cars to park directly behind the EJHS near the cafeteria, and are also blocking off the parking lot areas around EHS CTE hall and the band hall.
