beautiful! it is comforting to know that there is something being done about school safety. has the board been as vigilant about meeting their responsibility to the teachers? i dont think they have been paid in months.

Is she armed?

the guards should be armed; otherwise what is the point?

Chos vshalom someone shows up that should not be there how do you expect to stop this person???

Mezuzos

Are the mezuzos checked on a regular basis? We know that
they are the best security we can have!

Thank you Rabbi Stock & all involved in this. We must do our hishtadlut & Hashem will do His. Parents, teachers, guests please respect these rules. They are for our good.
A grateful grandmother.

1) During the day only way to get in should be that you need to get buzzed in.
2) The Cameras should also be monitored off site
3) Get security that is licensed to carry a gun
4) Get a guard that looks intimidating
5) Ask the parents to volenteer their time to help out in this area. There are many fathers that would help if asked.

The tehillim saying guard
Guest
The tehillim saying guard

Of course a security guard is necessary, but I hope they keep the old guard too, I really felt that although he wasn’t armed in the classic sense, that his tehillim and learning protect the school in a spiritual sort of way.

Yay
Guest
Yay

Kol hakavod they are doing something. And I’m happy to hear that the original guard is still keeping our students safe with the zchus of all the tehillim and learning he says daily!

Security in NYC is a joke.....

I work in hospital where the guards are not allowed to be armed and they are told that if someone comes in with a gun they should run!!!!!!!

Strollers

It’s about time. Oholei Torah had one for years

It will make things more intimidating for who?
Guest
It will make things more intimidating for who?

It’s going to end up with the only people being ‘intimidated’ being the parents or children but if the real thing comes c”v, zero.

The only constructive plan would be to have her monitor OUTSIDE cameras and report any suspicious activity BEFORE anyone tries to come in.

outside
Guest
outside

the security guards SHOULD be outside if anything

cameras
Guest
cameras

she is monitoring the outside cameras and has to buzz people in…

what is the plan?
Guest
what is the plan?

so what happens when a kid needs to be dropped off in the middle of the day? Will someone bring them to their classroom and make sure the class is there?

Sorry for sounding paranoid..
Guest
Sorry for sounding paranoid..

But does this discussion need to take place on a public forum..the exact pro and cons of our security situation…we need a little Sechel..lets leave it to the experts and follow instructions and if you have an idea or complaint walk in and talk to admin directly.
May hashem protect all of Klal Yisroel!

Great initiative but seems to have practical flaws

Bais Rivkah has an excellent guard already. He looks perfectly capable of fending someone off, if necessary. He is always alert doing his job and most importantly he learns and says tehilim during quiet times which is the best protection possible for our girls. Some of the rules make life very difficult for mothers. Not being able to bring a stroller into the building is the most difficult. How is a mother with a stroller meant to escort her young daughters to their classrooms, especially in cold or rainy weather. Imagine a mom who has to drop off two or… Read more »

To mr and mrs Yerachmeal jacobson. We are so thankful for all you do for our community. I know how busy you must be and still you make Bais Rivka part of your priority. May Hashem bless you and the new board for giving your time to help our school.

If in NY it is illegal for a security guard in a school to have a gun as someone stated, what about having an off-duty police officer outside each entrance? Surely they would be allowed to be armed?

But what about CROWN STREET?
Guest
But what about CROWN STREET?

Does Crown |Street have suitable security? Also, does Crown Street (an older building with more nooks and crannies) have good mezuzahs? I suggest each student bring $5.00 to contribute to the checking of her classroom’s mezuzahs and all the mezuzahs. SERIOUSLY.

WOW!! It’s amazing how sooooooo many people in this thread “dance in circles” around the practical point of the matter and do everything to avoid “calling a spade, a spade” in this instance. So I will once again be the first to “lay it all out” in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, someone will actually take note and do something constructive that actually makes the students safer, and doesn’t just make them and their parents “feel” safer. Let me preface this by saying that, with all due respect to Bentzion Stock, he most certainly has the best intentions for… Read more »
