All parents and visitors are required to sign in at the office and are asked to wear a visitor/volunteer badge while in the school during the school day, even if in the building for only a few minutes.
There is limited supervision outside in the mornings beginning at 8:25 during soft entry. Parents are asked to not bring their children to school before this time.
Supervision is not provided after school. In the interest of safety, all children who are not supervised are reminded to leave the playground when dismissed and check in at home. Due to COVID cohorting, we kindly ask parents to not have their children gather on the playground after school.
Picking Up Your Child
Parents must call the office to sign out their child, but are unable to come into the school due to COVID protocols. When you arrive, we will call your child from their classroom to come to the office and will dismiss the child through the front doors after the child confirms the person. Please allow a few minutes for your child to get to the office. In the interest of safety, children are not to wait alone outside. Please remind your children to go to the office if you are not available to pick them up immediately after school.
It is very important that we are aware of any custody agreements that may dictate who has legal access to your child.
Each class has an assigned door in which to enter and exit the school. You will learn which door is your child's the day before school begins.
Locked Doors and School Security
The outside doors to Altadore School are locked while children are in school; this keeps the school safe and encourages visitors to the school to check in at the main office. If children arrive late, they must enter at the front door and check in at the office.
All parents and visitors are required to sign in at the office and are asked to wear a visitor/volunteer badge while in the school during the school day. Please be aware that all adults who are working with children in the school are required to complete a police security screening. Due to COVID, at this time we do not allow visitors or volunteers in the school. The CBE will update this policy as the pandemic evolves.
