Thank You Senator Reed!
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!
Between the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM visitors to the school should:
- park in a designated visitors spot in the front of the building;
- press the buzzer in the main entrance of the school at which point front office personnel will speak into the intercom system asking visitors to state their name and the reason for their visit;
- once visitors are allowed into the building they must present a valid photo ID;
- If a visitor is picking up a student, they should remain in the front office as that student will be called down to the office;
- If you are visiting the school for a meeting such as our school counselling office or a meeting in one of our conference rooms, you must sign into the visitors book on the counter in the main office and school personnel will write out a spartan visitor pass;
- school personnel will then be called to escort the visitor to the designated location of the school
- all visitors will leave any items brought for students in the high school office and a school staff member will bring the item to the student. (ie: lunch, instruments, homework)
- Under no circumstances should any student or visitor to our building open any exterior door to let someone into the building
- During morning arrival, there are two exteriors doors open. One door for bus drop off and one at the middle school for parent drop off. There will be school personnel and/or administration at those doors each day
- No vehicle should parking in the circle of the driveway at any time as this is a fire lane. visitors must park in a designated spot

SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions)
The Scituate High School SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Club is bringing the “STICKER SHOCK” campaign to their community Saturday, January 26th, just in time for the Super Bowl. The sticker shock campaign is designed to reach adults who might purchase alcohol legally and provide it to minors. Stickers warning about the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors are placed on all packs of beer, alco-pops and other alcohol products that might appeal to underage drinkers. The impact of the sticker message is increased by media coverage of the event. The project represents a partnership between youth, retailers, concerned parents and community members, prevention professionals and law enforcement with the goal of educating potential furnishers, raising awareness about underage drinking and strengthening the deterrent effect of the law against providing alcohol to minors. The SADD students are proud to partner with the Scituate Prevention Partnership Coalition, Scituate Liquor Shoppe and Johnston Fine Wine, Beer & Spirits.
