WALNUT, CA---To continue keeping the safety of our students a top priority, Walnut Valley Unified School District will implement a new visitor management system beginning November 1.
WVUSD will be replacing the paper visitor sign-in sheets with the LobbyGuard Visitor Management System to ensure that individuals visiting all 15 campuses are authorized to do so.
“Our goal is to continue to provide a welcoming and warm environment for our parents, teachers, students, and staff while simultaneously communicating a culture of safety and security to the community,” said Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor.
Visitors will continue to be required to present identification to office staff.
Accepted forms of identification include any state issued driver’s license or identification card, Matricular Consular card, Military ID (active duty or retired), and permanent resident card.
Office staff will utilize the LobbyGuard system to scan the visitor’s name and date of birth with the national database of registered sex offenders. The scan may also include a photo for comparison.
Once the visitor has been cleared through LobbyGuard, the system will print a one-day identification sticker with name, photo, and destination.
Scanned information is not maintained by the District or the LobbyGuard System.
The LobbyGuard system is not connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of Justice, and Immigration. The data collected is confidential and stored securely through a web-based system.
Parents will not be required to complete the process to drop off or pick up an item in the school office.
However, if the purpose of the visit is to sign out a student prior to dismissal, or visit a location on campus, visitors will need to go through the new process.
