ENTERING/EXITING DISTRICT 96 SCHOOLS
Parents, if you haven’t visited your student’s school yet this year and had your driver’s license scanned, this is a reminder that you’ll need to do so if you plan to be in the building while school is in session.
Consistent with our strong commitment to our students’ and staff’s safety, the District updated its visitor management software prior to the start of this school year. This is a “fresh start”; that is, it requires that all visitors’ driver’s licenses be scanned by office staff upon their first school visit in this 2018–19 school year. Licenses scanned in previous years did not carry over and must be scanned again.
If possible, visit the school office to have your driver’s license scanned before the date you’ll be volunteering–especially if that date will be Oct. 31, when many parents volunteer and license scanning lines may be long.
Once your license has been scanned, you’ll receive a printed adhesive badge. Please wear it where it will be visible to students and staff–not covered by a coat, for example.
When exiting the building, do so ONLY through the main office doors by which you entered originally. Also, please be sure before leaving to sign out electronically as directed by office staff, so there is an accurate count of building occupants at all times.
