Starting March 4, the JCC of Louisville new policies will go into place to upgrade the security of the building. The JCC will move to a ONE ENTRY/ONE EXIT system. Everyone, everyday of the week, will use the main doors by the stone arches.
This change is to limit unauthorized access to the building. The door by the outdoor pool will no longer be used on Saturdays. The elevator entrance at the front of the building will remain available for those with disabilities or strollers.
The new policy will require all JCC members to scan their membership card before entering the building.
If you have misplaced your JCC Membership card, please see the Membership office and we will give you a new one. We will also make sure members have a current picture on file. Guests to the building will be asked to check in at the main desk.
Our children are our future and we need to take care for their safety and protection. The Early Childhood Department will also be a part of our One Entry/Once Exit system. We will be distributing full drop off and pick up details in the coming weeks for your child(ren)’s teacher or caregiver to help make this an easier transition for all.
There are many doors throughout our building that will be designated as Emergency Doors ONLY! These doors have been clearly marked in order to familiarize everyone before we activate the alarms on March 4. We ask for your cooperation in using to the Main Entrance/Exit in order to maintain a secure facility. Some areas which are used for programs may, at our discretion, have the alarms turned off during the allotted program scheduled time. At these times, our staff will be sure to disarm and open the doors prior to the program.
We are happy to continue hosting events and committee meetings in our facility and ask for your cooperation by signing in and providing identification at the desks. Staff and event planners will provide the desk staff with a list of participants for these events. Please help us speed up the process by being prepared to present some identification if you are asked by our staff.
New cameras were installed in the past two weeks, which allow us to monitor more locations throughout the building. The cameras were paid for from a generous grant from the Kentucky Colonels and a generous anonymous contribution.
This is just the beginning of our efforts to provide you with a secure and safe environment on our campus. We will be updating you on a regular basis as we continue to upgrade the facility for your safety. We will continue to research new security protocols and systems that will not only protect us, but also provide controlled and convenient access into and out of our building.
Thank you for your cooperation. Your safety is our priority.
