VISITOR SIGN-IN POLICY

I want to remind parents about our visitor sign-in policy. Visitors who wish to enter
the building (beyond the main office) during school hours will be required to provide a state driver's license or I.D. This information will be electronically screened against the National Sex Offender Database. An I.D badge using your photo will be produced and must be worn while in the school. As always, the safety of the children remains our top priority.
