If you have visited our school in the past few weeks, you may have noticed a new badge sensor and video phone in the entry area close to the office door. This equipment is part of our school’s safety plan and will require a new school entry procedure for school visitors. The video phone system enables all of our exterior school doors to remain locked during the school day, which is a strong deterrent for anyone who wishes to enter our schools to do harm. This extra layer of protection is a national standard in school safety and we are excited that our district has been able to provide this system in all FSSD schools and office buildings using a state safety grant and at no cost to our schools. The new procedure will only take a few more seconds for you to enter your child’s school, but it is a critical part of our campus safety plan and we appreciate your cooperation and patience as we begin to implement this plan. Signage will be clear and visible when the video phone system becomes operational on Tuesday, October 23 and our office staff will be sure to remind you to sign in and show your valid government-issued photo ID if you plan to leave the office area for another area of the school as we currently do. Thank you for your support and for being a positive part of your child’s school safety plan.
