Beginning Monday, September 24 we will be implementing a new safety measure at the Armstrong Pavilion.  With more and more students and classes utilizing the Pavilion, and safety being a major pillar in our district’s framework, we will be completing annual background checks on all patrons who utilize the facility (ONLY DURING SCHOOL HOURS).  All you need to do as a patron is bring your driver’s license with you for the front desk attendant to swipe.  This will happen annually or when a new member joins.  This will not take long.  We will take every measure to ensure that this as minimally disruptive to your day as possible.   Thank you for your understanding as we try to keep our students and staff as safe as possible.
