Dear MA families:
We are excited to announce the implementation of a state of the art visitor management system named LobbyGuard. This new system provides enhanced features and flexibility over our previous unit. Among the features:
- Kiosk operated with touch screen. Simply follow the prompts and scan your license. Your visitor badge will print at the front desk for your pick up.
- You may purchase a bar code tag from the front desk for $2.00. After your initial set up you will be able to simply scan your tag, enter whom you are visiting, and your tag will print at the desk.
- LobbyGuard Go! is a mobile app you may download free of charge. Once you complete the initial set up you will be able to sign in once you enter through the front doors. Skip any lines and pick up your visitor badge at the desk!
- When you are ready to exit the building stop by the kiosk, scan the barcode on your visitor badge, dispose of your badge, and you are checked out.
LobbyGuard has shown to be very effective in tracking visitors in and out of the school, running background checks, and storing essential visitor information for Administration and Law Enforcement should that ever be needed.
While we have tested this system extensively, it is new technology and we therefore anticipate there could be minor issues as we implement. For your convenience, we have arranged to keep our old visitor management in place for a few months to insure a smooth transition.
If you are interested, we will have a school representative available on Tuesday, August 21 to help instruct visitors in the system’s functionality, set up bar code accounts, or download the app.
As always, we appreciate your patience and support as we continue to strive toward making MA the safest campus possible for students and staff.
