The procedure for entering our buildings will stay the same for drop off and pickup times, but during the school day, individuals will enter through unlocked exterior main doors into the heated vestibule area. The interior doors will remained locked and visitors will push a button to talk with a secretary stationed at their desk. School personnel will be able to speak with the individual and check in as to the intent of their visit. The individual will then be buzzed in accordingly.
The key fob system will only allow authorized individuals to access the school and it will electronically record and time stamp who enters the building. Using key fobs is more secure as it allows for deactivation of the fob if necessary, and it eliminates the risk of key duplication. Having been involved with security planning in other schools, I have seen how these updates provide an added layer of protection that will help our students and teachers continue to focus on learning without worrying about their security. We anticipate the project to be fully completed and online after the holidays.
