BUILDING SECURITY

AND SAFETY

 Safety is a critical issue for all of us.  Above all else, we want our students to be safe.  No one, including a parent, should be in the building at any time without a Visitor’s Pass and receiving approval from the office.  All visitors, including parents and anyone not employed in this building, must sign in at the office, check in with the secretary, and receive a Visitor’s Pass before proceeding to any location in the building. You must check in with the office before going any place in the building.  If you are picking up your child for an appointment or illness, the secretary will call the child from the classroom to meet you at the office.  Upon leaving the building, visitors must sign out.  Entry to the building will only be provided through the Main Entrance.  Persons wishing to enter the building must use the entry monitor system.  Persons exiting the building must also use the Main Entrance doors.   

Arrival Times: The school is open at 7:00 a.m. for student arrival.  All  students need to enter school through the cafeteria in the mornings.  Parents are not permitted to walk students to their classrooms in the mornings.  Teachers are on duty in the cafeteria until 8:00 a.m.  Breakfast is served from 7:30 – 8:00 a.m. Kindergarten and Preschool students will be escorted to their classrooms by patrol students and/or teachers. 




Dismissal times for students being picked up from school are Preschool students and Kindergarten at 2:20 p.m. from the annex doors. All others will be dismissed at 2:27 p.m.

Tardy Arrival and Early Pickup


There has an abundance of unnecessary student tardies and students being signed out before dismissal. Students arriving late or being signed out early lose valuable classroom instruction time, and disrupt the entire classroom. Those should be rare occasions and only due to medical necessity.
