USD 480 Visitor Policy
The District welcomes all visitors to our facilities. In an effort to provide increased school safety, and an opportunity to better serve our visitors, we have implemented the following visitor policy. This policy should be in affect anytime a normal class schedule is being followed and generally from 7:30 a.m. till 3:35 p.m.
We would like to THANK YOU for your visit and hope that you understand why we take extra precaution when visitors do enter our facilities while students are in class.
USD 480 Employees TWO SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS (SRO)
In a joint effort with the Liberal Police Department, USD 480 has two officers assigned to our campuses. One has a permanent office at the Liberal High School where they are available and visible every day. The other shares an office at our two Junior High Schools. They both share time at the other 9 USD 480 schools. Although they are directly assigned to our schools, make no mistake, these officers are first and foremost Liberal Police Officers with the full jurisdiction of every patrol officer. Our officers have a little more latitude in helping enforce our policies. These officers also take a very proactive approach to campus security and safety. Both meet with classes and buildings regularly talking with students about these issues that have an impact on them.
