"We will be a school/district with an unrelenting focus on learning. All students are expected to succeed; failure is not an option."
Ashdown Schools has completed the installation of security access controls to all of the front entrances of its six student-housed campuses. This includes Margaret Daniel Primary School, C. D. Franks Elementary School, L. F. Henderson Intermediate School, Ashdown Junior High School, Ashdown New Tradition School, and Ashdown High School.
"When I was hired as Superintendent of Ashdown Schools," states Jason Sanders, "school security was one of the first areas that our school board stressed upon me." Since those discussions, the school has purchased and installed magnetic locking systems, which gives the district security team the ability to control access to the main entrances of all campuses at all times.
"We feel that we have a safe school environment," continues Superintendent Sanders, "but this system just allows us to improve upon that."
To enter a school building in the Ashdown district, visitors will have to push a button located outside the front entrance of the main building of the campus and wait for a receptionist, who can view the visitor on a camera, to release the lock for entry.
"We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause," says Sanders, "but it is for the safety of our students."
The campus electronic access system was purchased and installed by KLC Video Security of Texarkana, Texas, a certified integrator of Video Insights IP Surveillance Systems.
L.F. Henderson Intermediate School has yearbooks for sale from 2005-2011 school years. Paperbacks are $5 and hardcover are $10. These may be purchased in the school office and please make checks payable to LFH PTO.
In 1891, citizens of Ashdown instituted a tradition of community pride in educational excellence by opening the first school in Ashdown. What first began in a one room building located near the present site of the New Traditions School on Main and Frisco streets has grown into a consolidated school district covering 327 square miles and educating 1,600 students a year. The district includes six campuses, a Central Office building, District Services Building, and a Family Resource Center.
