School Visitors

ID Required

Penn Hills School District places a high value on the safety and security of its students and faculty. As a result, the District has implemented a number of policies and procedures concerning visitors to District buildings during normal school hours.

All visitors are expected to have scheduled appointments. Appointments may be scheduled during a teacher’s planning time, before or after school, or at a mutually convenient time. Exceptions may be made in the case of emergencies. Parent-Teacher Organization meetings and building-wide programs with open invitations from building administration are considered scheduled appointments.

All school visitors are required to present a government issued identification card to be admitted into our school buildings.

Each of the three District schools will require visitors to present a Driver's License or other state-issued identification, which will be scanned by the Raptor visitor control system. The identification card is used to conduct a background check, which includes a search of the national database of sexual offenders. A visitor's badge including the visitor's name and a small photograph is then printed (based off of the state-issued ID provided at the time of check in).
