PARENT AND VISITOR IDENTIFICATION (ID) REQUIREMENT:

One of Katy Independent School District's top priorities is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents and community members, who visit our campuses and facilities.

This school year, Katy ISD announces additional campus safety and security measures which include:


  • All parents and visitors must now present a valid, current, government-issued picture ID outside of the main entrance at all Katy ISD campuses prior to gaining admittance. Each campus is equipped with a controlled access system that includes a camera and an intercom that parents and visitors will need to utilize when presenting their ID for entrance. To gain further access beyond the campus front lobby, individuals will again be required to present their ID to the front desk receptionist in order to be officially logged into the visitor tracking system.
  • Student Identification (ID) Badge Requirement:
    Secondary students must now wear their ID badges at all times during school hours, while on district property. Students in grades PK-5 will continue to use their badges during lunch and library times. Fourth and fifth-grade students are requested to wear their badges throughout the school day. At the secondary level, failure to follow the ID badge requirement may be considered a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Campus Door Unlock Times:
    Controlled access systems on campuses will now unlock main entrance doors at a set time each morning. The standard door unlock times for main entrance doors at the Junior High is 8:10 a.m.
