Dear Parents and Guardians,
Sanderson High School continues to look for ways to ensure the security and welfare of our students and staff. As part of this practice, we will be implementing a new access control system similar to the systems already in place at many of the WCPSS schools
Beginning on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, all exterior doors will be locked throughout the school day.
Exterior doors will be unlocked only for morning arrival and will soon be relocked until the next morning. Visitors and late students will be required to “buzz in” to gain access to the building through a closed-circuit monitoring system at the front and this will be the only entrance.
Students who are late to class and traveling from outside the building will need to gain access through the front doors and “buzz in”. They will be given a tardy slip from the Attendance Office, so they can gain entrance to their next class.
Students will be provided an ID card and a lanyard on Monday November 26, 2018. Students are always expected to visibly wear the ID badge while on campus. Refusal to wear the ID will result in disciplinary consequences. Students that need to replace a lost ID will be charged a $5 replacement fee.
We need your help and cooperation for our system to work effectively. Our office staff is handling multiple tasks and although they will work diligently to help you gain access into the building as quickly as possible, there may be a short delay until someone can view you on the monitor and allow access. Please help by identifying yourself and providing your child’s name. Students will need to show their ID badge to gain access into the building without a parent. Once you are allowed entrance you are just a few steps from the attendance office to sign in and receive assistance.
I expect that we will have to work out a few wrinkles in our process in this security process as we get ready for our second semester.
