Northwood Elementary
Visitor Reminders, Policies and Procedures


Lunch:   If you plan to drop off your child's lunch, it will be your child's responsibility to check the table in the front lobby on the way to the cafeteria to retrieve it. Please be sure to write your child's name and teacher's name on their lunchbox.

Sign-in at the front desk:   All visitors must sign in between the hours of 7:00 AM - 2:45 PM. If you are here to visit a classroom or meet your child for lunch, please sign in as a Visitor, If you are volunteering, please sign as a Volunteer on our computer in the front office.

Wear a visitor badge:   A visitor badge must be worn at all times while at Northwood. I have instructed my staff to ask all visitors in the building without a badge to return to the front office to sign in and obtain a badge.

Student Sign-In/Out:   If your child arrives after 7:40 AM, please sign him/her in at the front desk. If you need to take your child out before dismissal at 2:20 PM, you will also need to sign him/her out at the front desk before 2:00.

Front Office Etiquette:   We will do our best to assist your needs, but please be sure to refrain from loud and/or telephone conversations while in the Front Office. If you come in to pick up your child, you may be asked for identification. We do this to ensure that our students are being released appropriately. If you send in someone to pick up your child and that person is not on your child's Emergency Contact list you will be contacted for verification and a photo id will be required.

Early Check-Out:   If it is necessary for a student to leave school early, please provide a note for your child to give to his/her teacher upon arrival to school. Parents/guardians should report to the office to initiate an early check-out. Please do not go directly to your child's room. Students will not be dismissed from the classroom without a request from the front office. Students may be checked out by a parent designee with prior verification. Be prepared to show your driver's license when checking out students.

Change in Dismissal:   If a student has a need to leave the school in a manner different from his/her normal routine, it will be necessary for the student to bring a change of dismissal letter which can be found on our website from the student's parent to the classroom teacher. This letter should be submitted immediately upon arrival to school. If a note indicating a change in dismissal has not been received, your child will be sent home via the regular dismissal route listed on the Student Profile.

Late Check-In:   If your child arrives after 7:40 AM, the parent must sign the child in at the front office. The student will receive a late pass to deliver to the teacher. Please review the Attendance policies regarding excessive tardies. Classroom Visits: We value every minute of instructional time with our students. Unless you have an appointment or are volunteering in the classroom as scheduled by the teacher, please do not enter your child's classroom. Turn Off the Cell Phone!: Driving through car pool lane while talking on your cell phone presents a distraction and potential accident for our children. We've had a few close calls over the years and have had a few staff members injured by cars that were driven by distracted drivers. Please help us keep our children and staff safe by staying off your cell phone and being alert during car pool.

Forgotten Items:   Be sure to label the forgotten item with your child's name and teacher's name. As with lunches, it will be your child's responsibility to pick up the item from the table. If your child isn't aware that an item has been forgotten (e.g. his/her glasses, etc.), please inform our front desk staff so that they can advise your child's teacher. The item will be delivered to the classroom, or retrieved at a time deemed suitable by the teacher.
