POLICIES & PROCEDURES
Safety is one of our main priorities at Albany Middle School. In order to maintain awareness of those on campus, we utilize surveillance cameras, cellular phones, walkie talkies, and School Resource Officers. If you would like to visit our campus, please enter through the front doors of the school and walk directly into the office to check-in. All other entrances are for employees and students only. If you need to check-out your child, request records, or have a parent/teacher conference, we require a photo ID before proceeding. Only those listed on your child's information card will be allowed to check-out your child from school. If you are scheduled to go anywhere else on campus, you will be issued a visitor pass. Your child's safety is as important to us as it is to you. Thank you for your support, cooperation, and understanding.
