2.   All visitors to the school must report to the main office upon arrival at the school and state the purpose of their visit. Visitors will be required to sign the visitors register and follow specific building procedures. Visitors are to immediately report to the area of their stated business and promptly leave the building when their business is completed.  Signs notifying visitors to report first to the school office shall be prominently posted in each school building in the District.

3.   Visitors attending school functions that are open to the public, such as parent-teacher organization meetings or public gatherings are not required to register.

4.   Parents or citizens who wish to observe a classroom while school is in session are required to obtain permission in advance from the Building Principal.

5.   Visitors are expected to refrain from taking class time to discuss individual matters with teachers.

Visitation will occur in a way that avoids or minimizes disruption to the normal learning process and the ordinary classroom routine. The building administrator may accompany visitors during the visit when appropriate. Visitors are expected to maintain confidentiality regarding information acquired during the course of the visit.

6.   Any unauthorized person on school property will be reported to the Principal or his or her designee. Unauthorized persons will be asked to leave. The police may be called if the situation warrants.

Before a child may be released from the building with a visitor, must be approved by the Building Principal or designee as one having the legal right to take the child. The visitor will wait in the main office for the child to come from the classroom and/or follow other duly approved procedures for that building.

 

7.   All visitors are expected to abide by the rules for public conduct on school property contained in this Code of Conduct.
