Important School Visitor Security Updates
One of our most important jobs in this school is to keep all students and staff safe. With this in mind, Scituate High School has reviewed our school visitor protocol and have worked with our building-based emergency operations team to make some small changes. In order to be as effective as possible, we wanted to share these steps so that you can be better prepared the next time you visit our school. As always, we appreciate your partnership and are fortunate to be a part of this amazing community!

- Once visitors are allowed into the building they must present a valid photo ID;
