Security Measures

It is our responsibility to ensure the safety of the children and all school employees. To do so, we depend on the local military command to provide explicit guidance and support. We take their recommendations seriously and stand ready to implement any security measures they deem necessary. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • 100% ID card checks
  • Parents wishing to enter the school for any reason during the school day must enter through front doors
  • All visitors must sign in and out at the front office
  • All visitors must wear a visitor’s badge
  • If a visitor is seen without a badge, a staff member will direct them to the front office


News and Announcements

Barkley is a Nut Free School
Due to the number of students we have with nut allergies this year Barkley ES needs to be nut free.  For some of these students exposure to even the smell of peanut butter can be life threatening.  We realize that this may create a challenge for some of you because it limits the choices you can send with your child as their snack or lunch.  We ask that you please understand and help us adhere to this policy throughout the school.  Please check labels when you are making selection to be brought to school.  Please ensure that your choice not only does not have nuts but also that it was not produced in an area that also processes nuts. - Thank you.

Stop bullying now

Every child is entitled to feel safe in the classroom, in the hallway and on playgrounds and buses. Bullying interferes with a student's ability to learn. All of us, teachers, administrators, students and parents, must work together to eliminate unacceptable bullying and harassing behavior. Together we can make our schools safe places to learn, grow and thrive.
