As part of the District’s continual focus on improving the safety and security of students, staff and visitors, enhanced security systems were installed in all schools last year. These enhancements were funded by the bond proposition approved by the community in 2015. One of these enhancements is a visitor management system that improves identification and tracking of visitors and provides more controlled access throughout the buildings when used in combination with the newly installed electronic door locks. In the event of an emergency, this system is also useful in quickly identifying all occupants in the building at a given time.
IMPORTANT: All visitors/volunteers must enter the school through the front office and will need to bring a driver’s license or other government-issued photo identification. To “check in,” visitors will be asked to scan their ID at a kiosk and provide some brief information. Once cleared to enter the building, visitors will be issued a badge to wear while on the premises. Upon exiting, visitors should also “check out” of the building by re-scanning their badge in the front office.
These procedures will be required of all visitors beginning on Monday, September 11. If you do not have a government-issued ID, you will be asked to wait in the office until a staff member is available to escort you.
Building secretaries will be available to help train visitors and answer questions. Your partnership and sponsorship is appreciated as we work together to improve the safety and security of students, staff and visitors.
