New Security Check-In
Dear Parents and Guardians, 

All of our schools have recently launched a New School Visitor Management System in an effort to keep security a priority with our students and staff. 

This system now requires anyone visiting the school to present a driver's license which will be scanned at our new, TOUCH SCREEN check-in kiosk in the front office. You will also be asked to share information such as your name, date, time of check-in, reason for visit, and where you're going. Once all of the information is entered, a temporary badge is then printed out for you to wear for the duration of your visit.

If you do not have a driver's license on hand at the time of your visit, another form of photo identification will be required. 

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in this as we continue to evolve our security measures to ensure the safety of you and your child in our school community. If you have any questions, please reach out to our main office.
