Safety and Security

Every parent can leave their child with us knowing that we take extra precautions to provide a safe, clean, secure environment for their child. It is The Merit School’s NUMBER ONE priority.

The Merit School has a set of safety and security protocols that we strictly enforce. Some of the highlights include:

Secure doors and entrances:

  • Our school is equipped with an electronic access entry system that allows only authorized individuals to enter.
  • Codes are only distributed for the main building.  Only staff  have access codes to the academic buildings.

Visitor Precautions: 

  • Those without codes must be allowed in by a front desk employee and will be accompanied throughout the building.
  • Photo identification is required from all unfamiliar visitors.
  • No child will be released to any unknown person without written authorization and proper identification.

Background Checks:

  • All employees are thoroughly screened and undergo criminal background checks and are trained in security measures by Child Protective Services.
