VISITORS AT SCHOOL

All visitors must report to the front office to sign in.  This includes visitors coming for lunch or attending special events in the classrooms.

Parents will not be able to escort children to the halls in the morning for the safety of all of our students.

People not wearing a visitor’s badge will be stopped and questioned by the staff.  All staff will be wearing an I.D. badge.

Visitors are asked to refrain from any activity that disrupts the learning environment.  This includes standing outside the classrooms waiting for dismissal, visiting in the hallway outside the classrooms with other parents during class time, or visiting with the teacher while she is responsible for students.

Parents are asked to wait for their children at dismissal time in designated dismissal areas.

When a parent or designated person picks up a student during the school day, the office staff will check the child’s enrollment card to ensure the person is authorized to pick up the child.  They will also ask to see the ID of the person picking the child up before calling the student to the office.  Student will not be called to the office before the parent arrives.

Parents who come to visit the children during lunch should sit at the “VIP” table with only their children and stay only during their child’s lunch time.

Only approved volunteers will be allowed to attend field trips if needed.
