Just a reminder……

Visitor Procedures We welcome parents and family members to be involved with their child’s school experience.  All parents are welcome to attend classroom parties, enjoy lunch or recess together, or come read to the classroom.  

In today’s world, this can make school security and safety very challenging. Therefore I want to outline our procedures for attending these events.  For classroom parties, we will have tables at the front doors for you to sign in and use a sticker to show you have signed in. During all other times, you will sign in at the office and take a visitors badge to wear before going to a classroom, playground, or lunchroom, for any reason.  The badge can be returned when you sign out. If you are picking your child up early we are asking you to remain in the office or lobby until your child comes down to you. Please do not go to your child’s classroom.  

Finally, we will not be allowing parents to go to the classroom or child’s locker between 8:25-8:40 and 3:00-3:20.  These are the two busiest times of the day and teachers are not able to give parents the attention that may be needed.  Please email teachers with any information that they may need to know for the day, call and leave a voicemail or leave a message with the office staff.  I know that this may seem like an inconvenience but please understand that we are trying to balance keeping the school a safe place but also one that is welcoming.
