LOWNDES CO., Ga. – To ensure the safety of students and staff, the Lowndes County School system has implemented a new sign-in system for visitors, according to a Friday, November 15 release.
All visitors to the district’s schools, Parker Mathis Learning Center, and the Board Office will present a driver’s license to be scanned before receiving a visitor badge and being admitted into the building.
This process instantly checks visitors against a sex offender registry. Visitors without a driver’s license will be required to present another form of photo ID and will be admitted on a case-by-case basis.
“We thank you for your cooperation in this safety initiative,” the Lowndes County School System’s Facebook statement read.
