New Security Measure in Cherokee County Schools
New Security Measure in Cherokee County Schools
All schools in Cherokee County now have a new visitor management system. This system has been put in place as an additional security measure for our students and staff members. When visitors arrive on campus, they must present their driver's license to visit students at school or to check-out students from school. Additionally, visitors will have their picture taken and a unique badge printed for them to wear while on campus. Please note that parents, guardians, or anyone on a students' approved check-out list must present their driver's license or another form of a photo ID in order to check-out students. We appreciate your efforts as we work to implement new security measures in our schools.
