    Work was completed this summer at Emerson, Garfield, Hawthorne, Whittier, Jefferson, Lowell, Silver Lake elementary schools and Jackson HS. The scope of work included constructing walls and doors at strategic interior locations, which create a secure entry vestibule. The new doors are controlled by the existing access control system, thereby enabling the office staff to remotely unlock the new vestibule doors to allow a properly badged visitor access into the classroom wings. Also, new doors were added in the corridors at some of the listed schools to further separate the private classroom wings from the public spaces in the schools. New fencing was installed at Lowell, Emerson, Madison and Jefferson elementary schools to better secure the schools perimeters.
