Rushford-Peterson addresses building security

The district has ramped up its protocol for usage and opted for restricted access by key, following a concern brought forth by board member Taylor Peterson regarding unauthorized and unsupervised use of the facility. Under the new plan, access to the weight room and gym will be limited. During the school year, both sites will be open to currently-enrolled R-P students from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and then again from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., as long as the use does not conflict with school-sponsored or pre-scheduled activities.

During the summer, the sites will be open to organized student use/captains’ practice during scheduled times, which will be set through the facility scheduler on the R-P website. Scheduled times will be posted at the gym and on the district calendar.

Additionally, an individual, 18 or older, may reserve the gym for a private function for a fee of $25 per four-hour time slot. They will be required to sign a waiver and will take full responsibility for all individuals who participate. They will be granted an entry key to access during the time slot, which must be returned immediately after via lockbox.

Individuals, 18 and over and out of high school, who would like access to the weight room, may purchase a key for an annual fee of $200. Allowing access to the northwest entry door only, the keys will be individually numbered and will allow access for that individual only. The district was quick to point out that an individual may not purchase an annual key and give admittance to others. These individuals will also be required to sign a waiver indicating full responsibility for injuries and damages that may occur.

Another key area revolves around the children of staff members utilizing the facilities. According to the new plan, staff members may only allow their children access to the gym or weight room if they are currently enrolled in the district as students and if supervised. Staff members, and their children, who abuse the privilege, or allow other children to access the building, will be held to the same standard as other community members.

New safety measures include rekeying all outside doors to the Rushford building with a laser-cut, non-duplicable key and rekeying the northwest door to allow access to the gym and weight room only, using the same technology. Additionally, five entry points at the facility are being eliminated, reducing the number of monitoring points. Th .....
