For those who have yet to come to our building during school hours, we now are totally locked down during the school day. If you need to come in to the building to dismiss your child or drop off an item, you will have to press the button on the column just in front and to the right side of the front doors. You will then be buzzed in to the foyer to either sign out your child or drop off your item. If you need to come in to the building for a meeting or event, you will need to sign in and get a visitor badge as usual.
