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.
Teachers provide supervision outside each morning from 8:15 to 8:30 AM. Parents are asked not to send children to school prior to 8:15 as there is no supervision before that. Afternoon kindergarten students are asked to arrive just prior to their start time at 12:27 PM.
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.
Picking Up Your Child
Parents must come in to the office to sign out their child during school hours. When you arrive, we will call your child from their classroom to come to the office. Please allow a few minutes for your child to get to the office.
Please ensure we are aware of any custody agreements that may dictate who has legal access to your child.
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.
Morning and afternoon kindergarten students will be picked up in the courtyard. For all other grades, please arrange a meeting place outside of the school. Teachers will inform parents of where their students will be exiting the building.
Locked Doors and School Security
The outside doors to Altadore School are locked while children are in school and are opened briefly in the morning, at recess and after school. This assists us in keeping the school safe and encourages visitors to the school to check in at the main office. If children arrive late, they may 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, the form for which is available at the office.
