Safe Welcome Program
Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board’s Safe Welcome Protocol supports a welcoming learning environment ensuring that parents and other authorized visitors have access to elementary schools while keeping students and staff safe.
Parents & Visitors
All SWO exterior school doors are locked during the instructional day. Visitors access the school during school hours via the main entrance.
The SWO front door is equipped with a video/intercom access system and signage. The access system allows staff to see and talk with visitors requesting entry. The system also allows school office staff to electronically release the lock on the door.
All parents and visitors must report directly to the office upon entering the school. Volunteers and visitors must sign in and wear a Visitor lanyard prior to circulating in the school.
