Alleghany County Public Schools (ACPS) is committed to providing a safe environment for students, staff and visitors. ACPS collaborates with the Sheriff’s office, State Police as well as emergency responders and together, have developed a comprehensive Safe Schools and Emergency Response plan that serves as a guide to help staff and our public safety partners respond swiftly should a crisis occur in our schools.

All visitors will be required to sign in and show a form of identification upon entering the building.  Visitors going beyond the main office will be required to leave their driver's license or other form of ID until they return to the office to checkout.
