Improved Door Access

We are also upgrading our door access systems to enhance the security of our buildings. This includes:

  • Card Swipes: Installed at all entry doors to control access.

  • Intercom Systems: Connecting the front office to visitors outside, allowing staff to communicate with and verify visitors before granting entry.

  • Remote Door Controls: Enabling office staff to unlock doors for visitors securely.

Visitor Management System

To further ensure the safety of everyone on our premises, we have installed (or are in the process of installing) a state-of-the-art visitor management system. This system will:

  • Background Scanning: Conduct background checks on all guests entering our buildings, ensuring an added layer of security.

These updates are part of our ongoing efforts to maintain a secure and welcoming environment for our school community. These enhancements will improve safety and provide peace of mind for families, staff, and students alike.

We appreciate your support and cooperation as we implement these vital security measures. If you have any questions or concerns about our new security systems, please do not hesitate to contact us. Together, we can ensure a safe and secure learning environment for everyone.
