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.
Notice of Nondiscriminatory Policy As To Students
The Saint Catherine of Siena School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
St. Catherine of Siena School is proud to partner with Manchester Police Department and Inforce911 to bring another level of security to our school. Beginning this school year, all teachers and staff have the ability to activate this alert system anywhere on school property in case of an emergency, bypassing out of town dispatch and going directly to police officers here in the city to ensure the fastest possible response time to our school.
