Access to Buildings---Students/Parents/Public

All visitors to the district buildings must first register as a visitor at the district offices. This would include all school property [grounds/parking lots].

Students must be under the direct supervision of a staff member before 8:10 or after school 3:35. Students will not gather unsupervised on school grounds before, during or after school. Students who ride buses need to report to them immediately after exiting the building. Non-bus students need to leave school grounds immediately after exiting the building. Activity participants will report at their scheduled reporting time and be under the supervision of their activity sponsors. Non-activity participants must be under the direct supervision of a staff member after 3:35 p.m.

** Any person [student/adult] who appears to be incapacitated [mental/physical] while on school grounds will be referred to law enforcement authorities. Threats to the school complex, students or schools personnel will be referred to the appropriated law enforcement authorities.

Location of Student Population

Students are to be located in the building [wing] that matches their age, grade, placement-[FAPE] and class assignment. Students who violate normal wing/area assignment [movement within such] will be restricted to a designated class/SH and assigned discipline measures.  Visitors/parents need to check in at the office upon arrival. The student will be brought to the office for communication. This cuts down on interruptions to the learning environment and helps protect student/staff safety.

Learning Materials [not provided by district]

Students are responsible for having the needed/required standard materials for successful class participation. This would include materials as required to complete--dated assignments and projects.
