****Important Information for Parents****

Husky Safety

Keeping our CSMS Husky Family safe is a top priority! We already have many practices in place to keep our students and staff safe each day; and on 10/24/19, we implemented a new access control system.

Each day after 8:00 a.m., all doors will be locked and visitors will be required to “buzz in” in order to gain access to the building through a closed circuit monitoring system. Visitors will only gain access through the front door on the right as you go through the main entrance.

Here are the directions for how to use this system:

1. To the right of the front door is an intercom/camera.

2. Press the button on the intercom.

3. Place yourself in front of the camera on the panel.

4. Someone on our office staff will see you and respond verbally.

5. They can then release the door for you to enter the building.

6. You will then report to the main office for further assistance.

We also want to make sure that everyone enters the building quickly upon arrival. You can help us by identifying yourself and providing your child’s name. Once you have been given access, please go directly to the main office. At this time, you will be asked to provide your driver’s license if you are dismissing a child or visiting a classroom.

We ask for your patience and understanding as we all get acquainted with this new system. We also remind you that all children arriving after 8:00 a.m. tardy bell need to be escorted inside as you will need to go through the above process to enter your child into the building. Please remember that above all else, we have your child’s best interest at heart. Please contact Dr. Cockfield if you have any questions or concerns.
