PLEASE ONLY share the code with those who need direct access to SCB (for pick-up/drop-off, etc.)
2) Front vestibule intercom for entry of individuals who do not have the code. Please feel free to press the intercom button if you require entry into the facilities. SCB will have a front office staff person monitor the intercom during regular business/class hours.
3) Panic buttons in every studio. USED ONLY FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES, these buttons can be accessed by faculty and will relay the need for emergency services directly to emergency personnel.
4) Alarm system complete with cameras and motion detectors to secure all perimeter doors. No unauthorized person will be allowed access inside SCB facilities.
Additionally, SCB policy asks that students:
1) Wait inside SCB lobby for rides. Students may still wait in the vestibule, but please know that this area is not locked during normal business/class hours. Waiting in the vestibule is at the discretion of the parent(s). NO student should wait outside for a ride.
2) SCB students who can drive themselves are asked to NOT go to their cars alone.
