If You Plan to Visit

If you plan to visit please check in at the front office.  You are welcome to visit any day that we are in school between the hours of 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM to view students through classroom viewing windows.  If you would like to go into a classroom to observe, please make prior arrangements with the office in advance.  If you would like to volunteer in a classroom, please contact the teacher ahead of time to schedule your time and activities.

Observation Guidelines
  • We will find you a place from which to observe.
  • Please feel free to ask for a Parent Observation form from the office to help you notice important information.
  • Please do not enter rooms or move about hallways without prior arrangements.
  • Do not interrupt working children or attempt to engage a child in conversation about their work.
  • If a child attempts to engage you in conversation, be polite, but direct them to return to their work.
  • The teacher may be able to answer brief questions. Some questions will likely need to be answered outside the classroom or at another time.  Please do not interrupt instruction to address your concerns.
  • Please be discreet about what you observe and maintain confidentiality.

Classroom Volunteer Guidelines
  • Talk in a quiet voice.
  • Please do not help children with their work. We are trying to build independence. Your children may show you their work, but please resist the urge to assist or correct.
  • Do not use this opportunity to discuss your child with the teacher. Schedule an appointment before or after school.
  • Do not disturb children who are working.
  • Maintain confidentiality.
  • Please see our Volunteer Do's and Don'ts information under Volunteers in this section of the site.
