All visitors must request permission to enter the school office by arriving to the front entrance and either calling the school office or ringing the doorbell located at the side door. Access to the office will be provided upon approval. Once a visitor has permission to enter the school, they must sign in. A visitor’s pass will be issued. The volunteers working with students must be district fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer. Visitors need to return to the office to sign out and return the visitor’s badge.
In order to eliminate unnecessary classroom interruptions, we request that parents and other visitors leave messages, forgotten lunches, books, etc., in the office for their child. In this way, the teacher is given the article or message at his/her break time, rather than interrupting students precious learning time. We appreciate your cooperation.
