Blythwood has a Visitors’ Policy to ensure the safety of our students and staff. It is monitored and reviewed every year. The Visitors’ Policy has many purposes:
To enhance the safety of the students, staff and volunteers at Blythwood, while maintaining a welcoming environment where parents are encouraged to participate in school life.
- To easily identify visitors, volunteers and parents in the school.
- To help teachers identify possible intruders in the school.
- To provide administration with the names of people in the school in case of an emergency.
After 9:00 am, all doors are locked for safety reasons. Visitors are required to enter through the FRONT DOORS, which are monitored by a closed-circuit camera and buzz-in system through the main office. Every visitor entering Blythwood during school hours is required to sign-in at the office and pick up a visitor’s tag to wear for the duration of their visit.
