CPS Security System
As a part of Colby Public Schools continued efforts to provide a safe environment for students and staff, a security camera/intercom system has been installed at the main entrance to each building.
While school is in session, all visitors will be required to use the camera/intercom system to gain entry into the building. School staff will make a visual and verbal determination prior to granting building access. In addition, all parents and visitors will continue to sign in at the office, wear a visitor badge while in the school and sign out when leaving the building.
