Parents, if for any reason you need to visit your child’s classroom during the school day, please remember to check in at the School Office in the gymnasium.  You must sign your name on our register and receive a visitor pass before proceeding to your child’s classroom.  This is part of our school security policy and ensures that we have a record of everyone on our campus at all times.  Thank you for your cooperation!

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
