We take the security of our school and the protection of your child very seriously. In light of recent acts of school violence nationwide, we have implemented several measures to increase our school’s security.
The U.S. Department of Education’s guidelines for school security recommends limiting school access points and implementing a visitor control system. In response, we have limited access to the school and implemented a visitor control and tracking system. This easy-to-use system takes each Visitor’s photo and prints a badge. It will also be used for printing Tardy slips, and will record when your child is released early from school.
You will need to bring a government issued photo identification (Driver's License or ID Card) with you to enter the building. Your ID will be scanned when you check in as a visitor or sign a student out for the day.
When you visit the school, go to the computer terminal, click on the appropriate badge and type in your name and reason for visit. Click on “take photo” and “check-in” and the system will quickly take your photo, log your time and print your visitor badge. You will be amazed that this system takes no more time than our present paper sign-in system and offers another level of security for your student at our school. Please wear this badge at all times while in the school. When you leave, simply click the red “check-out box” on the front of the screen and click on your name.
If you need assistance with this system, please feel free to ask anyone in the office. Thank you for your help in making our school a safer place for your children.
