Student safety is paramount at
Shreve Island. During school hours
all gates are kept locked and
entrance is restricted to the front
door where the secretary must buzz
any visitors in. All visitors are
required to present ID in the office
to get a visitor badge. All visitors
are screened in our Raptor Visitor
Management System before cleared
to visit. In addition, a thorough
network of security cameras provide an additional level of accountability.
Procedures and protocols are in place and drills are practiced regularly to familiarize the students with how to respond in case of emergency. We follow district guidelines with respect to fire, tornado, and lock-down drills.
School Liaison Officer on Duty
We are proud to have Corporal Clinton Grigsby of the Shreveport Police Department serve on our campus during the school day. He handles everything from carpool to patrolling recess, cafeteria and the hallways. We all feel secure with Officer Grigsby on campus. He is also great with the kids!
RAPTOR VISITOR MANAGEMENT
Raptor Technologies Visitor Management System is the nation's leading provider of school safety technologies. This visitor tracking system provides instant screening for registered sex offenders, custodial alerts, silent alarms and other custom and emergency notifications as needed by school administration. Over 16,000 campuses across the U.S. trust Raptor to keep their students safe.
On their initial visit, every visitor is required to present ID to be scanned into the system. For subsequent visits, they must simply show ID as their information is in the system. Raptor instantly checks each visitor's identify against constantly updated national sex offender lists. School administration can also enter custom alerts as needed for custodial or other issues. The system then prints a detailed photo badge which must be worn visibly while on campus. Using Raptor we are able to keep track of all visitors who are on campus at any given time.

As part of a school environment that uses technology integration as part of our curriculum, our children learn digital citizenship at an early age and how to protect themselves and others online. We teach our students:
to protect private information
to treat others with respect online just as they would in person
the distinction between “friends” in a world driven by social media
the ramifications of social media at an age-appropriate level
We also maintain diligence in ensuring that the school and district's content filters are working properly to ensure that no inappropriate content can be accessed. In addition, the chromebooks provided for students in grades 3 - 5 are set up requiring them to sign into their school google account in order to access any program or internet access. This provides absolute accountability for all activity while they are online under their own name. All activity is monitored and recorded by Caddo IT Department and inappropriate or concerning searches will trigger alerts to administration.
