Cycle Day 6
For the purpose of enhancing school security, the Mifflin County School District will be implementing the use of School Gate Guardian effective on Monday, October 7, 2019, in all school buildings within the district.
School Gate Guardian is a school visitor management program that will require all visitors to present a valid driver’s license or other state-issued identification upon arrival at the entrance to the schools. Once the visitor’s ID is scanned and checked against several databases, including the National Sex Offender database, visitors will receive a temporary visitor’s badge in order to enter the building from the school lobby. Protocol is in place for those who might not have a state-issued identification.
The system can complete this scan in under one minute. Please make sure to bring your driver’s license or other state-issued identification when you plan to visit a MCSD building before or during regular school hours.
Parents and guardians entering the school lobby to pick up students for early dismissals, drop off lunch money, etc. will not be required to be provide ID. Only visitors going beyond the school office will be required to be processed by School Gate Guardian.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and your participation as we continue to keep safety and security a priority within the Mifflin County School District. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your building principal.
