District Announces New A-Phone Security Measures and Plan for all Front Entries Featured Photo

District Announces New A-Phone Security Measures and Plan for all Front Entries

All campus guests will now be greeted at the front entry of each campus and building by the District’s new A-Phone system and a locked and secured front door. The A-Phone system combines video security and access control to assist West ISD in identifying all guests and their purpose for entry before being buzzed into the secure front vestibules. All guests will be asked to display a valid state-issued ID or driver’s license along with their full name, student name(s), and purpose of visit through the A-Phone’s video and audio feed. Once buzzed through both the locked and secured front door and vestibule, all guests will be asked to complete the Raptor Visitor Badge protocols. Again, a valid state-issued ID or driver’s license must be presented to receive a Raptor Badge. Each morning, the A-Phone system will activate at the start of the school day or 7:45 AM for West Elementary School.
