Changes for Cary Elementary Afternoon Visitors

Changes for Cary Elementary Afternoon Visitors

Effective Monday, December 5 all school visitors arriving after 4:00 should enter through the rear parking lot gym doors and sign in with the staff member that is present, as the front doors will be locked.

 3:00-4:00 pm   – continue to enter through front doors of school

4:00-6:00 pm   – front doors locked – please enter through rear gym doors

Cary Elementary is a very safe school, located in a safe community.  However, we consistently do security reviews with our county security department to see if there are ways we can make our campus even safer for our students and staff.  With this in mind, we will be changing our procedures. The front doors of the school will be locked each day at 4:00.  While this mostly affects parents picking up students from our after school program, which runs until 6:00, it will also affect parents coming for teacher conferences or other visits to school being made after hours.

Each day at 4:00 the school office closes, which means there is no longer a staff member available to monitor those who enter the school building after this time.  The after school program staff is here until 6:00 and will have a schedule that places a staff member in the gym for activities until that time.  Parents needing to enter the school between 4:00 and 6:00 should enter through the main gym entrance and sign in with the staff member that is present.

Thank you for your continued support and please feel free to let us know if you have any questions.
