New Visitor Check-In


Sherwood School District continues to prioritize school safety and look for ways to improve the safety of our students and staff.  In order to improve school safety, the district will begin a pilot of a new software program to manage visitors and volunteers. The pilot will take place at Sherwood High School and at Middleton Elementary.  Should the pilot prove successful, the district may implement this new software at all schools in the fall of 2019. Both schools will pilot the visitor management features in the software; Middleton will also pilot the volunteer management features using a few willing volunteers.  We believe this software will be more efficient for staff, and allow us to better track visitors and volunteers in our schools.

The pilot is scheduled to begin on April 8, 2019, and visitors to the high school and Middleton will need to bring photo ID when visiting the school.  When visitors arrive in the Main Office, a machine will scan their photo ID and print out a nametag to be worn while in the school. This process will only be used during the hours the school office is open and school is operating as it normally does.  For evening events and large community events, parents and community members will enter school without scanning their photo ID.

They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines... Newsies, the smash-hit, crowd-pleasing musical from Disney, will be playing at the Sherwood Center for the Arts.  A two-time Tony Award®-winning show, Newsies has audiences and critics alike calling it “a musical worth singing about!” (The New York Times). Filled with one heart-pounding number after another, it’s a high-energy explosion of song and dance you don’t want to miss.
Now is the time to seize the day with Newsies, playing April 4-6 and 11-13, 2019, at 7:00 pm at the Sherwood Center for the Arts in Sherwood (NOT at the high school PAC).
