Derby Public Schools does many things to protect those within our buildings. Secure entrances, school resource officers, storm shelters and emergency drills are just a few of the many ways that we work to keep everyone safe.

Another safety practice will be added to our schools this fall. Through our Strategic Plan, we are implementing a new digital visitor management system called SafeVisitor. This comprehensive system will enhance our school entrance security, streamline the check-in process and help us be aware of everyone in our schools so that we can account for them in the event of an emergency.

During the 2019-2020 school year, all visitors will use the new system. First semester, Derby High School, Derby North Middle School, Derby Hills Elementary and Tanglewood Elementary School will be implementing the system. By second semester, all schools will be utilizing SafeVisitor. This includes families, volunteers, community partners, contractors and vendors. Visitors will be asked to present a Driver’s License or government issued ID which will be quickly scanned into the system. The information will be run through the national database of registered sex offenders and local exclusion lists. It will not save other information from the ID or make a copy of the physical ID.

All approved visitors will have a picture taken at each visit and receive a badge that must be visible at all times. Visitors will return to the main office to check out at the front desk. If you do not have identification, please let the office staff know that you would like to sign in. Staff members can assist you and answer questions. The check-in process is not necessary if you are simply dropping off or picking up items from the office.

Thank you in advance for your participation and support of our safety efforts. You are an important part of our school community. We look forward to seeing you!
