VISITORS TO THE SCHOOL (Student Handbook)
General visitors, parents and others are welcome to visit district schools. For the safety of those within the school and to avoid disruption of instructional time, all visitors must first report to the main office and must comply with all applicable district policies and procedures. When arriving on campus, all parents and other visitors should be prepared to show a state issued driver’s license or form of identification. Prearranged visits to individual classrooms during instructional time are permitted only with approval of the principal and teacher and only so long as their duration or frequency does not interfere with the delivery of instruction or disrupt the normal school environment. Even if the visit is approved prior to the visitor’s arrival, the individual must check in at the main office first. All visitors are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of courtesy and conduct; disruptive behavior will not be permitted.
We appreciate so much the efforts of parent and grandparent volunteers that are willing to serve our district and students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the main office at your child’s school for more information and to complete an application online at emsisd.com.
In addition, if you are visiting or volunteering in a High Country classroom, we ask that you refrain from bringing non-school age children with you. We also appreciate you not accessing your cell phone during this time. If you need to use your phone, please step out into the hallway.
When visiting for lunch or on party days, please remember that children enrolled on other campuses within the district are not permitted to be at High Country during regular school hours.
