Visiting Our School

Rockwood South building

​​​Rockwood South Middle School implemented a visitor management system.  This new security system offers a fast, simple way to electronically register and review individuals who visit our sch​ool. It will ​streamline our​ check-in process. 

Security procedures

Providing a safe, secure school is always a priority for our school. We will continue to use the following safety practices:

  • Door-access technology requires visitors to buzz-in to the school office before entering the school.
  • Visitor check-in centers are located at the entrance of our school.
  • Security cameras monitor the building and parking lots.
  • School resource officers patrol our buildings.
  • All exterior doors are locked.
  • ​All visitors wear Identification badges.

What happens when visitors arrive at our school?

  • Visitors will be asked to provide a driver's license when they arrive at the school check-in center.
  • Our school attendant will verify the license and check the​ visitor into the school.
  • When the visitor has been verified, the system will create a customized badge that includes the name, date, time and destination in the building.
  • Then, the visitor will wear this badge while in the building, allowing for easy identification of all guests.

What are the student procedures for late arrivals, dismissals and classrooms?

  • Students who arrive to school late will check-in on the visitor system.
  • Teachers will receive an email notification as students move throughout the school - such as going to the library.
  • Students may use their Student ID card to scan in and verify their attendance. If they do not have their card, they can manually input their ID number. ​​
