Communication to parents concerning securing exterior doors to buildings 1 & 2
(Via Class Dojo/Connect 5/Website)
Policy implemented 3/1/2018
At McSorley Elementary, we value our parents and volunteers on campus and encourage them to interact with our students and faculty. A high level of parent engagement is one of the many strengths of McSorley’s school culture. It is our goal to continue supporting this engagement, while balancing the need for a safe and secure school environment. McSorley’s campus consists of four separate buildings which requires a unique way in which we create a safe campus for our students, staff, and community visitors.
Beginning Thursday, March 1, McSorley will secure the exterior access doors to buildings 1 and 2 during the school day. Visitors will continue to be required to check in at the main office and receive a visitor’s pass. The office will call the teacher to inform them that a visitor is coming to the room. Visitors will be greeted at the door by the teacher when they arrive at their exterior classroom destination. We consider a visitor defined as anyone, adult or child, not assigned to our school.
Parental involvement is crucial to building a positive and supportive school culture. We appreciate your on-going support to sustain our safe and positive school culture. If you have any questions, please call Mr. Hoffman at 208.748.3653.
