IHS to go live with new security enhancement

A few weeks ago, we made you aware of a new security enhancement the district is putting in place at all of its schools to further ensure the safety of our students, staff, and guests. Next week, our first Immokalee school – Immokalee High School – will go live with this new enhancement.

Effective Monday, May 21, the front office doors at Immokalee High School will be locked. Guests arriving on campus will need to ring the doorbell next to the door to request entry. When the front office staff answers, you will be asked your name and your reason for visiting, which may include your child’s name. Please present your photo ID to the camera directly above the doorbell. Once approved and access is granted, please do not allow other individuals to enter behind you.

As you enter the lobby, you will again present a photo ID and receive a visitor’s pass using the existing visitor screening system.

Please visit the following link for a tutorial video: www.collierschools.com/keepcolliersafe. The video may also be found on the Immokalee High School webpage, Facebook, or Twitter pages.

Guests should plan to arrive at the school a few minutes earlier to expedite their visit.

Prioritizing student and staff safety is a commitment we all share. If you have any questions, please contact Principal Clara Calderon directly at caldercl@collierschools.com.
