 Visitor's must sign in at the office. A visitor’s pass will be issued. The volunteers working with students must be district fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer. Visitors need to return to the office to sign out.
In order to eliminate unnecessary classroom interruptions, we request that parents and other visitors leave messages, forgotten lunches, books, etc., in the office for their child. In this way, the teacher is given the article or message at his/her break time, rather than interrupting students precious learning time. We appreciate your cooperation.  More information here.

Have a wonderful rest of your summer!

Ms. DeMartini
