New Access Entry System
Recently we installed a controlled access entry at the main entrance of South Junior High, which houses the main and administrative offices. The controlled access entry assists us in monitoring visitor access in a centralized and consistent manner, increasing campus security. When visiting South please make certain that you proceed to the main entrance and utilize the video door buzzer to request admittance. Additionally, we employ the Raptor System, which requires all visitors to provide either a driver’s license or State issued identification card. Upon your initial visit to South, you will be asked to provide the identification to scanned and checked through the system. Subsequent visits will not require your identification card to be run through the system, and we will be able to print you a temporary visitor’s badge containing your picture.
