St. Catherine’s has recently completed an installation of Nightlock Lockdown Door Barricades on all interior doors of the building. The Nightlock device was recommended to us by Manchester Police Department as an upgrade to our existing security plan, and we have worked closely with Manchester police and fire to ensure proper installation and use of this product. All faculty and staff have been trained in the use of the locks, and our emergency response plan now includes Nightlock as part of our safety procedures.

While Nightlock is gaining popularity in schools across the country, St. Catherine’s is the first school in the state to receive approval for and install this product. We are grateful to Manchester Police Department, Manchester Fire Department and the Office of the State Fire Marshall for their guidance through what was uncharted territory for all of us.

While we do not like to consider the possibility of an emergency situation occurring in our school, the safety of all children in the building is our top priority and Nightlock enhances the security measures we already have in place.
