Visit Our Schools
We welcome your visit to our schools!
Please enter the school through door 1 and proceed to the school’s administrative office. To check in, please present your driver license. Once you receive your ID badge, you’ll be permitted to enter the classroom portion of the building.
If you are considering multiple visits, accompanying your child on field trips, or volunteering, please consider purchasing a volunteer background check for $16.95. It will provide you an unlimited number of visits and volunteer time for five years! That’s only $3.39 per year! (Reminder: Volunteer background checks take at least 10 business days to process.)
Once your volunteer background check is completed, you may choose to download the free Safe Visitor Mobile App. Having the mobile app simplifies and speeds your check in process and streamlines your approval to accompany your child on field trips and other chaperoned events.
What do I need if I’m just accompanying my child on one field trip?
Without a valid volunteer background check, you are required to check in to the school as a visitor the day of the trip.
Do I need a background check if I’m meeting the group at the location of the field trip?
Individuals without a background check are prohibited from meeting the school group at the trip destination. If you are plan to meet the group at the trip destination, you must you have a valid volunteer background check on file and notify your child’s teacher by the teacher’s stated deadline to allow for verification. (Reminder: Volunteer background checks take at least 10 business days to process.)
