When students in the Kyrene School District return from winter break, they will be greeted by new security procedures.

According to the Ahwatukee Foothill News, the changes were spurred by the recent shootings in Newtown, Conn.

"I have designated a Safety Committee that will include the expertise of law enforcement officials to continue this work on an ongoing basis," said Superintendent Dr. David Schauer in a letter to parents last week.

Beginning Jan 7., all visitors to schools in the district will have to report to the front office before entering the campus and will have to surrender a photo ID to receive a visitor's badge.

When leaving the school, visitors will have to return the badge in order to get their ID returned to them.,
