2022-2024 Forever Keith Fund

As a school, we pride ourselves on all of the things that contribute to a secure and nurturing environment in which children are thriving.

We don’t often think about all of the things that contribute to that feeling, that environment.  But security is not an afterthought. Keith School is purposeful in creating a secure environment for your child. Current safety measures include limiting and monitoring entry points; managing visitor access; securing the campus perimeter; regularly training and practicing emergency protocols; and so much more.

There have been many technological advancements in school security and monitoring over the past several years. At Keith School, we want to be at the forefront of campus safety and security.

For this year’s Forever Keith campaign, we are going to continue our fundraising efforts for ongoing safety enhancements to our school and we are asking for your support.

Our students’ wellbeing is always our top priority. Please help us meet our two-year goal of $75,000 to allow us to provide the most secure and nurturing environment now and for years into the future.

With the funds raised in the past year, Keith School has completed the following:

  • Installed shatterproof reinforcements to the glass windows/doors
  • Created key fobs in the main office entrance, and other doors
  • Upgraded our camera system
  • Developed uniform room and door numbering system to accurately direct first responders

In the year ahead, with your generous donations, Keith can complete the following:

  • Upgrade AED units
  • Finalize key fobs for all doors
  • Finish our camera system
  • Provide an internet lockdown system for teachers
  • Ensure outside lighting
  • Upgrade the alarm system

We’re thrilled to tell you that each member of our entire Board of Trustees has committed individual funds to support the 2022-2024 Forever Keith Fund.

We humbly ask for your support to help ensure our students, faculty, staff, and visitors remain safe at Keith Country Day School.
