Your ESD Security Team is very excited to have our entire community behind the perimeter fences and manned gates at what will then be referred to as "the campus" because there will only be ONE!
Lower School parents will notice more uniform and efficient security measures quickly. All parents should be ready to show photo identification at the vehicular gates and have your parent badges on you at all times while moving around the campus.
In addition to the security checks at one of the two entrance gates, parents, and guests to the Lower School will also be required to sign in at the Lower School reception desk to enter the building. Back to School events will give parents a chance to register their vehicle with Campus Security to assist with a more efficient gate entry.
A new security software suite along with additional cameras and access controls will be coming online before the Lower School building is complete so that your security team can be trained and implement the software this summer before the students arrive in late August.
For the last two years, security has been making incremental changes to prepare each member of the community for the "One Campus" plan. Because of this transition, many security measures will seem routine: the vehicle registrations, color-coded badges, student parking regulations, carpool entry gates, carpool pick up locations, and other measures. Our intent was to lessen the impact of all of the changes happening at once. We appreciate everyone's adherence to our safety protocols and policies.
The Security Team is ready. We are looking forward to welcoming our youngest Eagles in the fall of 2019!
