I want to bring your attention to new security measures that have been put into place at Venus ISD. Our school board has authorized additional safety expenditures and we have recently installed new security devices on each campus that are designed for the safety of your children and our staff.
The front door on each campus has a panel on the wall next to the door. This panel has a button that notifies the receptionist that someone wants entrance into the building. The receptionist has a monitor on her desk that allows both audio and video information. The receptionist will be asking how she can help whoever is “buzzing” in. The person wanting entrance will state their business and the receptionist will direct him/her to come to the office and sign in. Please plan on having your I.D. with you as you will need it in order to get a visitor badge.
This is just one more opportunity to bring added safety throughout the district. Because it is new, you may at first find it slightly inconvenient but I know all will appreciate the added security this new system affords us.
I appreciate your cooperation and please feel free to contact your campus if you have any questions.
