Did You Bring Your State Issued ID?

East Central Schools has implemented greater security for our students. When visitors check in during the school day, they will be required to provide identification such as a driver's license or a state issued identification. Their ID will be verified through a system called Hall Pass. Once the identification is verified the visitor will receive a visitor's pass and will be allowed entry into the building. Hall Pass ensures that no individuals that are sex offenders are allowed access to the school. Hall Pass will also identify restraining orders and orders for protection.

The only entry accessible to visitors during school hours will be the main entry. While this will take a few moments longer for visitors to access the building, it will make our school much safer for our children. We appreciate your patience and understanding with this effort.
