Safety And Security
Surfside Academy makes the safety and security of our students, faculty and families our top priority. Of course, safety and security starts with our own faculty and staff. Our staff knows all of our students, their families and friends. We are extremely vigilant, keeping a close watch on the entire school campus and getting to know everyone's name. Our campus has a single entrance which requires all visitors to enter and exit through the same driveway.
All visitors must be let in through the front door by one of our staff to gain access to the administrative office. Once inside the front office, the administration greets all visitors. The inside door to the school is always locked and on a manual entry system preventing any individuals from entering the school without approval from the front. In other words, if our staff does not know a visitor, we will not allow them to enter the school without authorization.
All parents are required to check in through our Procare School management system. Parents have a unique code to identify them. Our system tracks entry and exit times for all individuals.
Inside the school, classrooms have cameras monitoring the class. These cameras can be viewed in the director's office. Also, throughout the school, all members of our staff wear uniform shirts and are easily recognizable. All members have completed background checks, drug tests and finger printing prior to starting their employment and then annually.
Lastly, our school works hand-in-hand with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office to be better prepared for any emergency situations. Annually we provide detailed information about our school to the Sheriff's office and are in regular communication with their officers. If you have any questions about our security systems or procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us.
