School Safety and Security Updates
New Visitor Protocols

The Irvington Union Free School District is commitment to providing the safest possible environments for our students and staff. To this end, the Board of Education and Administration are dedicated to making enhancements to our facilities and continue to seek opportunities to enhance our emergency readiness. This page shall serve as a portal for safety and security resources.

Heading into the 2018-19 school year, IUFSD implemented a number of security enhancements and is in the process of implementing additional measures this fall. Also, a number of long-range safety and security measures are in the planning process. Please review Dr. Harrison's August 31, 2018 letter on these important improvements.

Letter from Dr. Harrison

To help ensure the safety of our schools, the District has implemented new Visitor Protocols that will be effective immediately. While these practices will involve a more stringent "sign-in process", they will provide for safer environments. We thank all visitors for your cooperation and patience.
