Schools Cracking Down For Student Safety

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, MI (WLNS) - School safety is reaching a new level at charter schools around Michigan.

National Heritage Academy schools all have a visitor check-in system called LobbyGuard and they're some of the only offices in Michigan to use it.

6 News spent the day at a local school to see how this system is keeping kids safe.

At Windemere Park Charter Academy, all guests must sign in using the LobbyGuard. That's so administrators can keep track of all visitors that enter the school, at any time of the day.

The system also serves as a sexual offender alert.

It works like this: visitors sign in, take a picture, scan their license and enter some general information.

Windemere's outside doors are locked, so no one can come in, they have to enter through the office.

Once visitors are signed in, they must wear their sticker ID, so that staff and students know they have safely checked in.

Students are educated on the sticker IDs and told if they see someone without a LobbyGuard badge, to tell their teacher, who will send the visitor back to the office immediately.

Parents are happy LobbyGuard has information for whoever came in and picked children up or signed them out. It's a safety measure that is helping parents feel more comfortable with their kids attending Windemere.
