At Honaker Elementary
School, we strive to promote a safer learning environment for our
students. As you know the Connecticut
tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary has touched the lives of all of us. Such a tragedy has prompted us to reflect on
our own safety plan and how we may better protect our students and staff.
Our drive by system which
directs you to travel by the football field and drop your child off in front of
the north entrance of the school is for your child’s safety. School staff are present to get your child in
the school safely. Cutting in and out of line or passing other parents while
they are unloading is unacceptable.
Creating a new line and surpassing others by driving through the parking
lot is also unacceptable.
If it is absolutely
necessary to walk your child in to the school, you may go no further than the
office. Any matters you may need to take
up with your child’s teacher may be done so in the office. If you need to speak to your child’s teacher,
make an appointment in the office and the teacher will address your concerns at
a scheduled time. Items you bring to
school for the child WILL be left in the office.
In the event of a special
occasion, such as a play or birthday being held in the child’s classroom, you
MUST sign in the office and get a VISITORS PASS and sign out when leaving the
school. If you are without a VISITORS
PASS you will be asked to leave the school.
Afternoon parents picking
up their children will either line up in the designated manner for after school
pickup or approach a staff member at the north entrance to pick the child
up. You will be prohibited from waiting
in the school foyer to pick your child up.
these rules may seem rigid, it has become a necessity to take further
steps to promote a safer environment for your children. We regret causing any inconvenience and
encourage your continued support for our staff at Honaker Elementary School.
