Parents and other responsible adults are always welcome at school. If you know in advance that you will be visiting your child's classroom, we encourage you to notify your child's teacher ahead of time so they are prepared for your visit. We do not allow students to bring friends or other non-registered students to school due to liability and space restrictions. In addition, parents may not bring younger siblings, other children, or babies with them when they visit or volunteer in a classroom. This can be a serious distraction from the learning environment for all students.
DoDEA policy mandates use of visitor badges and positive identification of all visitors and contractors. In compliance with this policy, upon arrival, ALL visitors are required to come to the school office, sign in, show identification, and receive a visitor's badge. All visitors MUST sign out and return the visitor's badge upon leaving the building.
DoDEA policy requires that all volunteers complete an application and background check in order to ensure the safety of all students.
Temporary school volunteers must not have have unsupervised access to students and must be under the direct-line-of-sight supervision of a DoDEA employee at all times.
A specified volunteer may have unsupervised access to students once they receive a favorable background check. The military police department is the point of contact for background checks. An outside licensed agency may provide the background check, however it must be mailed from the agency directly to the school principal.
