Kelloggsiville — Those who enter Southeast Elementary School after the morning bell has rung might notice a change in procedure.
The front entrances of that building, as well as the 54th Street Academy and Kelloggsville Early Childhood Learning Center (KECLC) were reconfigured over the summer for a new security system.
All now have a vestibule area separating the outside entrance, main office area and the entrance into the building. Visitors coming after school starts must be granted access to each area via an automatic locking system that is set on a timer. Depending on the time of day and visitor’s needs, they may need to be buzzed into each area separately, Assistant Superintendent Eric Alcorn said.
The entrances are similar to what many other schools in the county currently have. In fact, the district’s high school, middle school, and West and Central elementary already have those secure entrances.
