For the safety of all students and staff at Windsor, some new policies will be enforced in regards to access to the school building during the school day.
All visitors to Windsor will be required to sign-in on the Raptor computer system in the front vestibule. You will need to have your ID to sign-in appropriately. When in the school building, parents will be escorted by a staff member or safety and security to the location of their business in the building. Individuals who do not appear on the student's Infinite Campus list of contacts will be unable to enter the school building without prior approval.
Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding the enforcement of safe school policies.
