All visitors to the school are expected to enter through the front doors and sign in with the main office.
- For access, please ring the doorbell to the RIGHT as you face the front door. A staff member will ask how they can help you before visitors are “buzzed in” and then are asked to enter and report to the office.
- Please wait to hear the “click” of the lock opening. Once in the school, proceed directly to the main office and sign in. Our office staff will be happy to help with your questions and direct you to the appropriate location if you are in school to attend a meeting.
Visitors & Volunteers
At Valley View School, we welcome every opportunity to connect with parents / guardians including the casual meet and greet moments that take place when you drop-off and pick-up your children. We encourage parents to establish routines and meeting spots for after school pick up times. If you need to go beyond the front foyer to a classroom, at any time of day, we then require that all visitors or volunteers sign-in and pick up a visitor tag at the office. This also applies to visitors proceeding to the Medicine Wheel Pre-School located in our building.
Teachers begin playground supervision each morning at 7:45 AM, fifteen minutes prior to school starting. Students should arrive at school after these times and before the entry bell rings. Students are expected to remain outside during these times and also during the lunch recess. Outdoor activities will be cancelled only if it is extremely wet or cold. Please dress for the weather. There is no school-sponsored supervision on the playgrounds after school.
During the lunch hour, teachers supervise children who stay for lunch on the playground during their recess times. We ask that students that go home for lunch not return earlier than 12:25 PM.
All students can access breakfast club between 7:40 AM and 7:55 AM. Students must be on time when accessing breakfast club as they are expected to go outside at 7:55 AM to line up with their class ready for an 8:00 AM entry.
