Knox 111 Administrative Center front doors to be locked during business hours effective March 6

Front entry to Knox 111

Effective on Monday, March 6, 2023, all doors leading into the Knox 111 Administrative Center will be locked during regular business hours from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The locked doors are consistent with security practices in Olympia School District schools, where entry doors are locked during the school day.

Staff may enter during regular business hours using their access card on the reader posted on the wall just outside the entry doors on the north side of the building’s front doors, as well as next to the Technology Department entry. If you forget your access card please ring the doorbell at the main front door entry, or knock on the Technology Department door.

Community members who have an appointment with or are seeking information from administrative office staff will be directed to ring a doorbell located on the north side of the building’s front doors (off 111 Bethel St. N.E., Olympia). The front desk receptionist will answer the doorbell.

Members of the public who need to meet with the Technology Department on the building’s lower level should knock on the door located near the parking lot next to the Knox building off Tullis Street. The door is at the top of an accessibility ramp with blue railings.
