  • Visitors on campus


    All visitors are required to sign in at the office when we open at 7:45 a.m. During the first week of school, we allow parents and guardians to walk their children to the class meeting place to help the students find where they need to wait.

    Throughout the remainder of the school year, we are a closed campus and we require all visitors to sign in at the office and acquire a visitor badge between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. It is a requirement that all visitors sign in at any school office prior to entering campus while school is in session. This procedure helps us to ensure all kids safety.    
    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our school office at (480) 279.6800.
