    Parent and Family Engagement Plans

    ATTENTION Parents and guardians


    The principal of each school will designate a time when students may arrive on the school campus.  Students shall arrive at school no more than thirty (30) minutes early (8:45) and must leave within thirty (30) minutes of dismissal (4:45). 

    Exceptions may be allowed for those students involved in supervised extracurricular activities and tutoring.   The school shall not be responsible for student who are on school premises outside of the designated times.

    IAW Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook, page 31.


    To continue to safeguard students and personnel, daily random searches, which may include the use of metal detecting devices, will be conducted in schools. No student will be selected to be searched based upon their gender, race, ethnicity, physical appearance, manner of dress or association with any particular group of persons. Random searches will include student personal effects.

    Students refusing to submit to a random search consistent with these guidelines may be subject to disciplinary action. 

    These searches will begin Monday, August 26. The process has been explained to students during their lunches.

    If you have any questions, please contact Dean Hicks (850-937-2220 ext 239)
