Last month the Superintendent, Christopher Rundle, announced through the Communicator that Gull Lake is going to enhance its school safety.
Name tag use will be more strict. All staff members must wear their identification and visitors must have a visible name tag.
This rule isn’t new; it has been here for years, but now it’s being enforced. Anyone without a name tag is to be reported.
Rundle hopes to purchase a School Check-In Machine for each building. The machine will be able to issue out name tags to visitors, check students in and out of school and record student volunteer service.
With this new system, it’ll be easier to spot harmful visitors.
“Students will be aware that any adult in the building not wearing a visitor badge or a staff badge may not be a ‘Safe Stranger’,” Superintendent Rundle wrote in the Communicator.
These new rules will continue to take effect next fall.
