Schools Install Access Control Systems

Wednesday, August 15, 2018
Bennett Mountain High School was the first school in the district to implement these access point changes in 2013 and acted as a sort of "guinea pig" for the rest of the district.

The 2018-2019 school year is underway around the district and there have been many changes throughout the several schools in Mountain Home. East Elementary got a new coat of paint with it's mascot on its exterior. The high school hallways were painted along with the cafeteria gym. But one of the biggest projects over the summer was the access control installations at all of the schools.

Superintendant James Gilbert has been informing the public at school district meetings throughout the summer of the progress on the access control projects. Now that the school year has begun, he hopes that student's and teachers will adjust quickly to the changes.

"It's really about student safety," said Superintendant Gilbert. "We want to do as much as we can to secure buildings and provide a safe learning environment."
