Keeping Woodstation Students Safe

February 15, 2017

Dear Woodstation Parents and Guardians,

Starting date TBA in March 2017.

In Catoosa County Public Schools, student safety is our highest priority. Based on community input, we included projects in ESPLOST V to enhance safety in our schools. The first project we have completed is a front door management system at Woodstation Elementary. To keep your child safe, this system will help our staff make sure that only authorized individuals can enter our school.

A Secure and Safe Building:

With this enhancement in safety, we need your help as we put new protocols in place. All exterior doors at Woodstation Elementary are locked when students are in attendance. For any visitor to gain access to the building, the buzzer system located at the front door of the school must be used.

v  Office staff will greet visitors through the intercom system and will ask the visitor to provide information regarding his/her visit. At this time, all unknown visitors will be asked to provide a government issued photo I.D. Office staff will determine if entry to the school will be granted.

v  Once inside the building, please proceed to the office to sign in on our Guest and Visitor Computer.

v  Visitors will be required to wear a visitor badge provided by the office during their visit.

I understand that it will take a moment at the door while our staff verifies your identity; however, I’m sure you agree that it is worth the time to know that only authorized individuals are walking the halls of our school. Thank you for your cooperation as we make this transition to improve safety and security for our children and staff.

If you have questions or concerns about safety, please do not hesitate in contacting me at 706-935-6700.
