All visitors will need to enter through Door 1, which is located by the office. Parents and visitors will not be able to enter the school at Door 2 or 14 before or after school. If you want to bring your child into school, you will need to use Door 1. This would be a great time to transition your child to walk into school and come out of school on their own and with their class. If you need help with this, let us know and we will help by bringing your child into school. How does KeepnTrack work? Visitors will use their driver's license to scan into the system. It does a check on the sex offender list and then will print a visitor's pass which is bright in color, so easy to identify. If you are volunteering in the classroom working with students or helping on a field trip, then you will need to fill out the application for volunteers which is on our website under KeepnTrack. The system does a background check and also checks the sex offender list for all volunteers. Here is the criterion for classroom and field trip volunteers: Criterion for Classroom/Field Trip Volunteers: Working one on one in classrooms, mentors, volunteers on a field trip (assigned to small groups under the general su- pervision of a teacher, handing out lunches, etc.). Sex offender list No. No exceptions Child Abuse registry No. No exceptions Child endangerment/abuse No. No exceptions Felonies Will investigate case by case Violence-related offenses Will investigate case by case Illegal substance Time since the offense to be considered (within past five-eight years) The Watch D.O.G.S. program is a positive program with strong male role models present in our building providing support and assistance for students. We love our Watch D.O.G.S.! If you are interested in volunteering with Watch D.O.G.S. you will need to fill out the volunteer application on our website under the KeepnTrack link. The Watch D.O.G.S. criterion has been created and reviewed by the Watch D.O.G.S. organization, Norwalk elementary administrators and with assistance from the Norwalk Law Enforcement. Here is the criterion for the Watch D.O.G.S. program: Criterion for Watch D.O.G.S. Sex offender list No. No exceptions Child Abuse registry No. No exceptions Child endangerment/abuse No. No exceptions Felonies Will investigate case by case Violence-rehted offenses No (domestic abuse, assaults, etc.) Illegal substmce No more than one offense OWI/Public intox No more than two, unless they are more than five years Multiple misdemeanors Drop if more than five years old or unrelated to service Norwalk School District has a commitment to providing a positive and safe envi- ronment for your children.

This system helps us be proactive in making sure e eryone who works with students will add to the environment in a positive way. Contact the rdaool if you have any questions about this new system. We appreci- ate our volunters and visitors and don't want to make it more difficult, so we are hoping this conmunication will help with a smooth transition.
