Visitors are welcome at any School District building, provided their presence will not be disruptive. Any person wishing to confer with a staff member or visit a classroom during the school day, shall contact that staff member in advance to make an appointment. Parent(s)/guardian(s) and other residents of the community are asked not to visit during the first week of school and during periods of testing. All visitors shall initially report to the Building Principal's office. Conferences with teachers are held outside school hours or during the teacher's conference/preparation period.
Any staff member may request identification from any person on school grounds or in any school building; refusal to provide such information is a criminal act. The Building Principal or designee shall seek the immediate removal of any person who: (1) refuses to provide requested identification, (2) interferes with, disrupts, or threatens to disrupt any school activity or the learning environment, (3) or engages in an activity in violation of Board policy 8:30, Conduct on School Property.
In certain instances, students may request permission from the Building Principal to bring a guest to school. This permission should only be sought in limited cases such as prospective student transfer or contributing to the educational climate of the school. Students wishing to bring guests to school must secure permission in advance from the Building Principal.
