PARENTS & VISITORS
PARENTS / VISITORS
Parents are asked NOT to interrupt their child’s class during the school day to bring items (homework, lunches, bookbags, etc.) forgotten by students or parents. ALL parents, visitors, relatives, and former students need to come through the school office to check in before, during and/or after the school day and must be checked in through the HallPass system. ALL visitors will be required to provide a valid government issued ID, driver’s license, green card or military ID to be scanned and checked against the national sex offender registry. Once the screening is complete and the visitor is cleared, a visitors badge will be printed which will include a photo and name of the visitor. This visitors badge must be worn at all times while on campus. Only the visitors name and photo will be retained for future visits. Visitors must request a badge each time they enter the school.
If you would like a conference with your child’s teacher, please call the school office and leave a message for the teacher. He/she will return your call and set a mutual time to meet.
Materials submitted by a parent, student or other party may not be distributed to the student body, in whole or in part, without first obtaining the permission of the principal and a copy submitted to the school office. Only materials sponsored by Christ the King parish organizations (e.g. Rexfest, Knights of Columbus) or other Catholic parishes or schools (e.g. Immaculate Heart of Mary fall festival) will be sent home. PLEASE DO NOT SEND BALLOONS AND/OR FLOWERS TO STUDENTS.
PARENTAL RIGHTS: Non-Custodial Parents
Non-custodial parents are not to use the school as a meeting place to visit with their child/children. In the case of divorce, it is the responsibility of the parents to provide the office with a copy of the divorce decree that includes the court order stating custody and visitation rights. The principal will allow a non-custodial parent to take a child from school only as specified by the court order unless other arrangements have been authorized by the custodial parent. If the court order is not on file in the office, it will be assumed that both parents have equal rights. Upon request, a copy of the child’s report card will be provided to the non-custodial parent.
Messages for students may be taken by the office when there is an emergency or when it is essential for a student to receive information. Students are not usually called to the phone. No student will be allowed to use the office phone to request a forgotten lunch or school work. Since office telephones are constantly in use for school business, students may not use an office telephone to call home unless there is an emergency. Teachers are not called to the telephone during class hours unless it is an emergency. All messages are written and delivered as soon as possible.
On the last day of school, the Unbirthday Party will celebrate all student birthdays. For Kindergarten birthdays see Kindergarten Supplement at the back of the manual. Teachers will make arrangements through the room mothers for refreshments. No individual student birthday parties will be held. Other parties include a Christmas party and a Valentine party. If parents or room mothers want to provide small treats at times other than the scheduled party days, they should make arrangements with the individual teachers. Drinks and cupcakes are time consuming and, therefore, are not allowed. No gift items of any kind shall be delivered to students. Invitations to private student parties can be delivered at school provided each student in the class receives an invitation.
BALLOONS ARE NOT ALLOWED. LIMOUSINES TO PICK UP STUDENTS FOR PARTIES FROM THE SCHOOL AND CHURCH PARKING LOTS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
