Elm Tree Elementary follows the district policy when it comes to visitors. Policy states that "Visitors in the building or on the school grounds must enter and check-in through the school office. Visitors are asked to present their valid state identification, which is scanned, and to wear the visitor badge given to them at check-in. Student visitors from other schools or school-age siblings of current students are not allowed because of the dual problems of space and class disruption." At this time, parents are not allowed to visit during the lunch hour.
Students who must leave school for any reason, including illness, must officially be checked out through the front office by a parent or guardian. Parents picking up their child during the school day are required to come into the front office to sign the student out and must show their valid state identification. Parents are discouraged from checking students out of school for non-medical reasons, (i.e. lunches, haircuts, assemblies, etc.) however, only parents may check out students for lunch and the student schould be returned by the parent. Students will not be allowed to check out from school with any persons that are not listed on their Emergency Contact information. The cut off time for all check-outs is 2:30 and any changes made to transportation must be done by 2:15.
