Alvey Designated 2014 School of Excellence

Our students have the distinction of attending a newly named PWCS School of Excellence. This is the 10th year Alvey earned the coveted title.

School of Excellence is the highest recognition awarded to schools by the PWCS School Board. It signifies high levels of performance on state accreditation, Annual Measurable Objectives, and in moving toward the goals of the Division's Strategic Plan.

Congratulations to everyone who helped to earn this important indicator of student success.



Parent Input Requested

Dear Parents,

The J.W Alvey Principal's Committee is seeking your input. At our meeting in September, a parent requested that the committee investigate the possibility of adding a buzzer system to the security systems already in place at J.W. Alvey.

Alvey is not being considered for the buzzer system by the county because we have a "secured entrance" meaning that everyone has to come through the office to gain access to the rest of the building. The buzzer system would add another layer of protection.

Currently, when a visitor comes to Alvey, they have to enter through the office, have their ID scanned, verify with the information on the emergency card and notation of the destination of their visit. If the buzzer system were to be in place, the visitor would have to present ID to the screen, be buzzed in and then follow the steps listed above. Administration and staff would have to outline the events when the system would be used and when the system would be temporarily disabled. This would be dependent on the event and the number of parents that needed to be checked in using the buzzer system.

An informational meeting will be held on Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 pm in the school cafeteria to answer questions and to gain feedback. Please direct questions and comments in advance to rotrucca@pwcs.edu . This will help us to prepare for the meeting. A ballot will be sent home, one per family, on December 10th with a deadline of return on December 15th. We want your feedback, so please take advantage of this opportunity to vote "yes" or "no" for the buzzer system.

If the majority of the school community wants the additional security system, we will proceed with seeking funding through grants, with an estimated cost between ten and twelve thousand dollars. Funding will be through grants and/or from the Alvey community, not through school or county funds. If the majority of the community does not want the buzzer system, the current security procedures will remain in place.

Please give this careful consideration.

Community Meeting - December 4 at 7:00 pm

Ballot home on December 10th

Ballot return on December 15th

The results will be shared at our January Principal's Meeting on 13th at 6:00 pm.

The Principal's Committee
