Magnetic Release Doors
Panic Alert Button
Drop Down Door
Expansion of Front / Main
Library Door(s)
Note: I have independently researched and consulted other
area schools for ideas and information. I have also consulted a
local contractor for some of the data to follow, as well as 5
separate security companies from Bozeman, Butte, Ennis, &
Idaho Falls for estimation and strategies that COULD BE
employed. Most of these ideas would not dramatically change
the appearance of the Harrison School.
Expand Main Entry to
create more room by
moving interior door
in approx. 2 feet.
 Potentially move main
exterior door out
approx. 2 feet
 Button / Intercom in
Approximate cost: $3,000

Expanding entry: $1,000-$2,500
If we decide a controlled access point is an appropriate
safety precaution, as many schools in our area are looking
at (Lima, Twin, Ennis, Anderson), it is my firm belief we
need to expand the front entry for the comfort of our
public and parents.
The video intercom would be placed to the right of the fire alarm
system control. The interior door would be moved in about 2 feet,
right to where the light switch is. The exterior door could also be
moved out 2 feet to the superintendent office window.
Emergency Services personnel
could have keys as well

Intent is to seal off

& conversely, the High
School from the
Elementary and Lobby
area, within a few
In theory, we close off
portions of the school to
minimize risk.

The High School front entrance
doors need to be readjusted,
$29.99 - $129.99 -Per hole
Where practical, installation of
peepholes may also allow for escape
According to 1 security company, we can likely save a significant sum (as much as
$5,000) by using volunteer labor or otherwise doing some of the project ourselves
