'Greeters' to be employed
at two RCS buildings
by KIMBERLY SCHERERBoth Indian Hills Elementary and Croswell Center will have door greeters employed temporarily following the Board of Education's approval Monday night.
Observer Special Writer
Superintendent Nancy Campbell said the greeters will be a security measure and will sign in visitors and direct them to their destination. The personnel will be in place until a buzzer system is installed at Croswell and a vestibule built at Indian Hills.
"I'm looking today for direction to hire people," she said to the board.
Campbell said there will likely be two door greeters employed per day per school. Each will likely work about six hours a day for $8 per hour.
The greeter position at Croswell will be very short, just about a month, until the buzzer system is installed.
"It's probably a little bit more sophisticated," she said in comparison to the other schools with a buzzer system. Croswell's will be more of an office building-type system. Campbell added that the system will be more of a long term solution should Croswell ever be repurposed to an elementary school.
As for Indian Hills, the temporary position will run until Thanksgiving break. During the break Campbell said a vestibule, similar to the one at Washington Elementary, will be constructed.
Originally Campbell said she hoped the vestibule could be built quicker and be in place sooner.
Board President Anita Banach made the motion for Campbell to hire the temporary employees as needed through November, not to exceed $3,000. A new budget line item will be created for the expense under the buildings' security fund as it is one of their safety and security goals.
The board voted unanimously to approve it.
