Crosby High School
Parents/Guardians, we wanted to outline the processes for the security screenings that will begin the first day of school Thursday, August 11th. Students will be subject to metal detector screenings as they enter the building.
There will be 4 screening areas:
- Front lobby opens at 6:15am. Car riders and drivers are asked to use this entrance.
- Bus riders will enter through a designated area in the rear of CHS. This screening area will open at 6:40am.
- Athletics and specialty bags such as cheer and band will need to be brought to the checkpoint at the Athletic wing. This screening area opens at 6:40am. (If a student with a specialty bag arrives before 6:40am, please check your bag at the front lobby screening area. Bus riders will check their specialty bags at the bus rider entrance).
- The fourth entrance is for LifeSkills students only.
To make this process run as smoothly as possible, we encourage students to empty everything from their pockets and place all objects into their backpack, including cell phones. Students are also encouraged to remove belts and watches before going through the metal detectors. Students should not remove their shoes. Backpacks must be clear or mesh.
If students are not cleared by the metal detectors, they will receive a secondary screening by an administrator. This will involve the use of a handheld screening wand.
All adults who enter the building will be screened throughout the day in the front lobby. All students who leave and return during the day will be screened again.
Please see the attached map which illustrates which screening areas are designed for certain students.
Please also take a look at this video explaining how students will walk through the detectors, and if necessary, receive a secondary screening.
We appreciate your patience during the first weeks of school as we establish this new security routine.
