Dear Parents, Community, and Staff, 

The new security procedures are now in place and will become our new operational habit and we expect that all will follow accordingly for the process to assist in keeping our schools as safe as possible. Again I mention that we are fortunate that the Board of School Directors approved this new technology which increases security for our students and staff. The protection of our entire community, the students and staff, is something we prioritize at Homer-Center. So, while the learning curve for the new system may seem like an inconvenience at first, we also know everyone benefits from upgraded comprehensive security measures now in place and will be our new normal operating procedure. 

Here are highlights for school visitors regarding the changes:
  • Visitors must gain entry to the schools only at the main entrance of each school. All external doors are locked.
  • Visitors will be required to push the button and speak into the camera lens located on the device called an “aiphone”. The “aiphone” is located on the outside wall next to the main entry door. The “aiphone” is a system that will allow individuals within the school to talk to and see people outside of the school.
  • Visitors will be expected to state their name and the purpose of their visit to the school’s office personnel via the “aiphone”. Authorization to enter may be granted by the school office personnel.
  • Visitor access to the main hallways of the school building will be limited.
  • All visitors, once permitted access to the office, will remain secure and locked in the office area until further access is granted, if needed.
If you have any questions regarding this procedural change for access to the schools, feel free to contact this office. Again, thank you to all for your anticipated cooperation in this process.
