If you wish to visit your child's classroom, please make prior arrangements with his/her teacher or through the school office. All parents, visitors, and volunteers must sign in at the office for all classroom visits or activities. Any person on campus without a visitor pass will be asked to sign in at the office or will be asked to leave campus.

School Closure Procedures

In the event of a natural or man-made emergency such as a hurricane, tsunami, bomb threat, or relase of an unknown substance into the air that threatens the health and safety of our students and school personnel, or school has emergency response plans developed. Moreover, we are required to practice emergency drills on an annual basis to minimize exposure to dangers.

In the event of an emergency, your child will be cared for by our staff in accordance with school plans and guided by emergency response personnel such as police, fire, and emergency medical services. At times like these, we ask your cooperation by:

  1. Remaining where you are and not rushing to the school campus. This will help keep roadways clear and allow emergency first responders quick access while not exposing you to danger.
  2. Listen to the radio or watch television for information and instructions. (If conditions permit, this website will also be used to communicate instructions and information).
  3. Picking up your child(ren) at the regular dismissal time unless otherwise directed.
  4. Avoiding calls to the school to keep the phone lines open for communication with emergency responders.
There may be instances when we will need to keep your child(ren) at the school or at the evacuation site for long periods of time to ensure their health and safety. Please wait for an "all clear" signal from appropriate authorities before going to the school or evacuation site.
