If the system raises a question about a visitor's
background, the school administrator will take the necessary steps to ensure
the appropriateness of each individual's visit.
Upon your initial visit to a school, the process will take
approximately 30 seconds; however, on return visits you will only be required
to provide your name to the secretary and the system will recognize you.
The safety of our students and staff is a top priority in Jemez
Valley Public Schools. This new process simply enhances their safety and
security by limiting access to those who pose a potential threat.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact your
child's building principal.
