All visitors must sign in at the office upon entering the school building and please remember to sign out when leaving. All outside doors will be locked at 8:30 a.m.  Please use the security monitor on the brick wall (the panel is to the right of the front doors). Please do not proceed to any classroom without office notification and signing in and receive a visitor's badge. Our instructional time is very important and cannot be randomly interrupted. The security of your children is of the utmost urgency. Please cooperate with these guidelines-It is to protect your child!
