The Riverside Local School District Board of Education recently approved a contract with Lakeland Management Systems to construct improved, secure vestibule entrances at Buckeye Elementary, Melridge Elementary, LaMuth Middle School and Riverside Campus. Each building will include two layers of entrance doors with a transaction window in between. These updated entrances will allow for visitors to be properly vetted between two sets of locked doors before entering the building. The transaction window will allow for visitors to drop off deliveries without having to enter the building at all.
Parkside and Riverview elementary schools already feature these vestibule entrances.
The new entrances will feature a handicap button that will open the doors when they are unlocked in compliancy with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The vestibules will also feature a new buzzer and intercom system, level 3 ballistic glass and new cameras.
The project is tentatively expected to be completed in the summer of 2024.
