New Parent/Visitor Pick-up Policy

Parkland School District has initiated a new security protocol requiring visitors, including parents, to make an appointment with the school staff before arrival, and show Identification upon arrival. When a parent or visitor arrives at the school, they will also be asked to state nature of business. Parents should be able to  identify the name of their child, grade and the name of the staff member they have an appointment to see. It is possible that the administration may ask the parent to come at a different time if there is no appointment or is there is insufficient information regarding purpose and knowledge of visit. If permission is granted, visitors must sign in at the front desk in the school office. An identification badge will be issued to each visitor and must be worn while on the school campus. In no case should a parent take a child from the school without notifying an office staff person. Please note that each school is equipped with a camera security system and all visitor activity will be recorded.
