Hello Dixon Families:
Good luck to Dixon students who will be participating in the Dixon Spelling Bee after school on Wednesday, December 11. The Elmbrook Spelling Bee will be held on January 23 from 3-5 p.m. at WHMS.
Dr. Hansen working with the very talented artist Vesile Yilmaz. Thank you to our PTO for helping to bring her to Dixon School!
Reminder -- NO SCHOOL on Monday, December 9.
Thanks to Ivy Smith and her students for the wonderful performance of the Nutcracker . Thanks also to all the parent helpers. We're so fortunate to have the Nutcracker brought to us every year.
As part of the District's 2018 School Safety Grant awarded by the State of Wisconsin, we were able to install 32 new cameras at Dixon Elementary this Fall. This is a significant upgrade from the four cameras we had installed prior to this school year, and matches the standard deployment of cameras at all other schools in our District.
The location, control and access to our security cameras is directed by District Policy 5144.3. The security cameras record video only (no sound) and are deployed to improve our ability to monitor activity that would provide a disruption to learning, or a threat to the safety of our students and staff. Cameras are installed in high traffic locations around the school such as hallways, the gymnasium, and the cafeteria. Additionally, there are cameras on the exterior of the building focused on our building entrances/exits and the playground.
We have programmed our cameras to record whenever there is motion, 24 hours per day. Office staff are also able to view live feeds of the cameras should the need arise. Video footage is retained for about 30 days and then overwritten by new recordings.
The safety of our students and staff is our top priority, and we are grateful for the opportunity to expand our cameras through the School Safety Grant.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
As always, if you need anything from us at Dixon, please contact me.
