At Liberty, we recognize the value and importance of the health, safety and well-being of every student and staff member in the district. To ensure the safety and security of all students, employees, and visitors to our buildings, we have implemented the following district-wide visitor safety procedures. All visitors are asked to adhere to the outlined procedures listed below:
Plan ahead, where possible: If you are planning to visit the school building during the school day, you should call the building office and pre-register for an appointment prior to the date of the visit.
Park in designated areas: Prior to building entry, please ensure that your vehicle is parked in designated visitor spaces. Do not leave vehicles parked or standing in fire lanes, bus lanes, or spaces not designated for parking.
Enter through the main office: Upon arrival at the school building, enter through the designated visitor/main entrance and press the call button. The greeter will contact the individual that the visitor is requesting to confirm arrival. Once granted access, all visitors will report to the greeter desk/window. For the safety of all students, employees, and visitors, all exterior doors will be locked.
Identify yourself: You will be asked to show your ID card to the camera, state your name, who you are here to visit, and the nature of your visit prior to gaining entrance to the building. If you are requesting to see or remove a student from a school building, you must be an authorized parent or guardian or have authorization from a parent or guardian.
Have your ID ready: Present your valid photo identification to a staff member. All visitors will be asked to verify their identity by showing district staff a form of photo identification, such as a driver’s license or government issued ID card. We will not check you in as a visitor or release a student to your care without your photo ID. Individuals who cannot provide an ID will be accompanied/escorted by a district employee to/from the place in the building the person needs to go and then back to the point where they sign out. They will be accompanied at all times.
Wear your visitor badge at all times: The visitor badge must be displayed and visible at all times during your visit.
Drop off items at the front desk, when applicable: parents and/or guardians should leave items such as a change of clothing or a lunch box at the main office of the child’s school.
Sign out before leaving: At the completion of your visit, you will be required to check back in at the greeter station to return your visitor badge and sign out as a visitor.
Please note that school entrances and numerous locations in our buildings are under video surveillance. Providing a safe and secure learning environment is a priority at Liberty Central School District. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, please reach out to your building principal.
