(Sept. 16, 2013) – During September 2013, Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) will be enhancing its current security practices with an additional emphasis placed on exterior door security, visitor identification and the purpose of the visit. This could result in minor inconvenience in some cases.
All visitors to schools will be required to verify their identification with school personnel prior to entry; regardless of the frequency they may visit an individual school. This verification will be done through the AIPHONE system at the front entrance to the school.
All exterior doors will be closed and locked at the beginning of school and remain so until students are released for the day. Using the AIPHONE will be the only way visitors will be admitted to the school.
These security practices are intended to assure parents, students and staff of the school’s commitment to safety and security, balancing both the needs of the public with reasonable security provisions.
Should anybody have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Suzanne Devlin, Supervisor, Safety and Security at 571-252-1740 or Suzanne.Devlin@lcps.org.
The AIPHONE system has been in use at LCPS schools since the 2007-2008 school year.
