Security at Lockwood School
The safety of the students and staff at Lockwood School is a priority. Security cameras are located in the the hallways of the school, and plans are in place to add additional cameras to other areas of the campus. All Lockwood school buses are equipped with video cameras with audio capabilities.

As another security measure, the public is encouraged to get a visitor's pass from the office of the building that is being visited. This procedure allows staff members and students to know that visitors to the campus have "checked in".

Locked Door Policy
All doors in each building will remain locked during the school day. Students arriving after the starting bell must enter through the main door and check in at the building office. All visitors during the school day are required to check in at the building office and pick up a visitor badge to be worn in plain sight at all times while in the building.
