Front Doors Locked During the School Day
Please remember that during the school day, the front doors of all PLSD schools are locked. Anyone wishing to enter the building will have to ring the doorbell and wait for a staff member to let them into the building. By locking the front doors, we are preventing visitors from entering the school without being first identified and appropriately checking in with the front office.
