BASD Updates for Visitor Management & Student Drop-Off Times
The Brookville Area School District was recently awarded a Safe Schools Grant. A portion of the funds from the grant have been used to purchase and implement a new visitor management system at each of our schools. Beginning Monday, March 5, 2018, anyone visiting our schools during school hours must sign in a the main office of the school they are visiting. Visitors will be asked to present their driver's license or other identification card to a BASD staff member at the office. The ID card will be scanned into the system and a badge will be printed for the visitor. Prior to exiting the building, all visitors must return to the main office, return their visitor badge, and sign out with school staff.
Additionally, when arriving at our schools and requesting entrance to the building, visitors should expect to be asked for their name and reason for their visit prior to being granted entry to the office. Buzzers are located at the main entrances to all school buildings and will be used by office personnel to communicate with visitors prior to granting them entry to the building.
Finally, students may be dropped off beginning at 7:00 AM for the high school, 8:00 AM for Hickory Grove, and 8:20 AM for Pinecreek and Northside. Parents should not drop off their children at the schools prior to those times each day.
We understand that these changes may result in some inconveniences for our families and visitors during school hours. However, the safety of our students and staff is our greatest concern and these measures are being implemented to build upon other safeguards that are already in place.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we continue to make improvements to our schools.
