New this year, guests visiting our school – whether they are parents, volunteers or partners in education – will be asked to scan a driver’s license or military ID at our school security desk in order to receive a visitor’s badge. This process provides an added layer of security at our school by allowing for an instant identity verification review against a national offender registry and the printing of detailed name badges including the visitor’s name, time of entry and destination. This quick process should take no more than 30 seconds. In the unlikely event that a visitor does not have an ID with him or her at the time of the visit or there is a problem scanning an ID, he or she may be manually entered into the system and escorted to his or her destination. For security purposes, this exception may only be made once for each visitor. The enhanced visitor check-in is a change from the old paper/pencil sign in sheet you may be familiar with using. It is not meant to be intrusive. Instead, it is simply an additional safety measure similar to the security cameras, security assistants, and school resource officers already in place at our schools.
