Safety and Security
The safety and security of the children at the Day School is our number one priority. Every staff member receives reference, child abuse and criminal checks through several agencies of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. CPR training is taught or renewed for every staff member annually, and First Aid training is renewed for the staff every 2 years per American Red Cross guidelines. The Prevention of Sexual Misconduct is a required workshop for each staff member within the first six months of their employment. This is conducted by the Episcopal Diocese. A class in infant head trauma is also required for all staff members.
The Day School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, differing abilities or national or ethnic origin in its hiring practices.
Any suspected case of child abuse or neglect is reported to the State's Cabinet for Families and Children.
Any person entering the building to retrieve a child from the Day School program must be on that child’s list before being allowed to take the child. Only one entrance to the school is accessible without a key, and that entrance is secured by a coded door. The building is handicapped accessible via an elevator to the second floor. A ramp is in place outside the main church building.
We have yearly inspections by the State Fire Marshall's office and have monthly fire drills and quarterly tornado and earthquake drills to ensure that children know how to leave the building and where to go in case of fire. The Day School is equipped with smoke detectors and a sprinkler system.
