Clearance Should Be Given to Any Visitor before Entering the School Premises: Let anyone who wants to go into the school premises be cleared. This is so that the numbers of people who go into the school are properly screened for safety.

Students Should Be Encouraged to Report any Suspicious Moves or Person within the School Premises to the School Management: The school management has got to train students on the importance of reporting any malicious moves within and outside the school premises.

Teach Teachers to Be Vigilant: It is pertinent that teachers are taught on the importance of alerting the school authority when they spot a shady move by an outsider towards any or student of the school.

Students Should Only Be Allowed to Leave the School Premises Only When They Have a Pass from the Security Post: It is pertinent for the school to create exit passes for the students. This is so that they do not leave the school compound without the knowledge of the school.

Students Should Be Trained On Security Related Subjects
The student in question has got to be trained on the importance of being security conscious. Imbibe in the students a consciousness that would cause them to be alert at all times.

NPHS Student Council is inviting all NPPSD students and staff to participate in the 5th Annual Light Up the Night 5k Run/Walk to benefit Make-A-Wish of Nebraska.

The run/walk will take place at Cody Park on Saturday March 24th from 7:30-9:930 pm, with registration at 7:00 pm. You can register early and the Rec Center or online at  WWW.PLATTERIVERFITNESS.COM.
