I.D. Badges

To ensure a safe environment for the children and staff that attend, work, and visit our schools in Prince William County, employees who work in or visit schools or school division facilities, or perform transportation duties and responsibilities are required to wear a photo-identification badge (I.D.) at all times.

Release Of Students During School Hours

Only those individuals listed on the student's emergency information Card will be authorized to remove student(s) from school. Any individual wishing to sign out a student is required to first check in at the security desk by signing in and leaving a government-issued photo ID card. Once admitted, the request to sign out a student can be made in the main office. 

Reporting Code of Behavior Violations

Students, staff, and parents share the responsibility for an orderly and safe school environment. Information about drugs, weapons, or other factors which may be harmful to the school environment should be reported. Students who have knowledge of drugs, weapons, violence, or other behaviors which may be harmful to others or to the school environment may be subject to disciplinary action for failure to report such information to school authorities.

The following are some suggestions for reporting such information:Say Something

  • Contact the school principal or other administrator
  • Dial the PWCS Tip Line at 1-844-5-SAYNOW or
  • Call 911 to contact the police in cases of emergency

If a student discovers something in his or her possession which is not permitted at school, that student should report to an administrator or other staff member immediately. Follow-up action shall take into consideration that the student voluntarily brought this to the attention of staff. Students should contact an administrator, teacher, or counselor immediately if they believe they have been victims of discrimination, harassment, or other acts which violate the Code of Behavior.  

Evolv Safety Screening


 As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring a safe and secure learning environment for all students, we have implemented safety screening technology. This advanced technology will enhance our existing security protocols and help us quickly identify potential threats, ensuring the safety of our students and staff.

  • The building will open to students at 7:00 am, 30 minutes prior to the start of the school day.
  • We will have [two] entries into the building while all other doors will be locked. 

Entry into the building will be at the following locations:

  • Door 4 – Parent Drop Off/Student Drivers
  • Door 1 – Bus Riders

Once the school day begins, all visitors and students arriving after the bell will enter through Door 1 and will go through the screening.

To prepare ahead of the use of the technology in your school, families are encouraged to help reduce the possibility of “false alerts” on everyday items. While none are prohibited, using these guidelines will ensure a quick entry for everyone:

  1. Select clear and plastic school supplies over covered/concealed and metallic when applicable.
  2. Use three-ring binders with plastic spines/rings (non-metal).
  3. Utilize plastic (versus metallic) BPA-free water/coffee bottles.
  4. Use hard plastic eyeglass cases (versus metal).
  5. Students should “pack-light” and limit the number of items in bags or other equipment.
  6. Keep superfluous metallic items home (game consoles, beauty products, USB drives).
  7. Laptops and umbrellas will be passed around the technology via a staffed table.
  8. Note: Exact school supply lists are communicated individually by schools/teachers.

If you are dropping your student off to school, please be mindful that your student will need additional time to go through the device.
