Lynbrook to implement new entrance policy

Visitors to any of the seven Lynbrook public schools will soon have to hand their drivers’ license or passport to the school’s security guard, who will keep it at the security desk while they are in the building, Director of Facilities James Saitta announced at the district’s Board of Education meeting on April 16. He said that the new policy would be implemented when security vestibules are installed at all of the schools, which should be completed by the time students return for the 2019-20 school year in September.
