Dear Timberview Community,
The safety of all Academy School District 20 students, staff, and community members is of utmost importance. In light of recent events, the district is standardizing procedures for entering schools.
Effective immediately, all parents, non-TMS district personnel, and visitors, will be admitted through the buzzer system at main entrance only. You will be greeted as follows: "Timberview Middle School may I help you. Please proceed to the office with your photo ID and I will assist you further." Once at the office, a TMS staff member will verify the photo ID of parents, non-TMS district personnel, and visitors and ask what the purpose is for their visit. All parents, non-TMS district personnel, and visitors will sign in on designated form with their name, student's name, purpose, and the date and time arrived. Visitors are required to sign out when they leave.
Signs regarding this new procedure are posted at the front entrance of Timberview Middle School giving notice to the parents of the procedure for entering the school. Staff members will verify the identification of the person even if they know the person by sight and name so that all visitors are treated the same.
In addition, "NO ENTRY" signs are posted on all exterior doors directing visitors that they must sign in at the main office.
Thank you for your cooperation in this important safety matter.
Brett Smith, Principal
