Changing up campus protocols, there is now a doorbell at the front door. In order to enter, parents and students must ring the doorbell and present their ID.

The days of someone simply walking to the school are over.

Now, there’s a video doorbell system that was implemented at Frisco ISD High Schools for the following the initial stages at Frisco Middle and Elementary schools in years past. 

“It’s been used in elementary schools and, I believe, in most of the middle schools,” campus SRO Officer Glen Hubbard said. “Some of the high schools had it last year, [but] it’s just been implemented across the district this year. It’s just one of those things that students, parents, and staff have to get used to.”

Unlike the doorbell added outside of the orchestra room in the spring of the 2022–23 school year to accommodate for the nature of the class, the front office doorbell, along with the rule banning drop-offs and pick-ups, is a new security measure. 

“I used it in Vandeventer, which was my middle school,” sophomore Nidhi Thomas said. “You would ring a doorbell, tell them what it is you needed, and usually, the front office person would open the door, talk to you outside the door, and let you in based on whatever you needed.” 

This year, the process differs from the one Thomas remembers. After pressing the doorbell and hearing a response, visitors are required to show a student ID or license and explain the reasoning for their visit. 

When it comes to the directions themselves, both parents and students seem to be adjusting well to the system. 

“Parents and everybody [else] have been doing a really good job showing me their ID and waiting for me to let them in,” front desk receptionist Kelly Kasperlain said. 

Only good can and seems to be coming from the extra security measure according to Hubbard.. 

“It seems to be pretty effective,” he said. “You know, in between classes, with CTE Center and stuff like that, they let everybody in, but then there’s somebody that would watch them. It’s working as it needs to be.”
