M. Agnes Jones Elementary School
Policies and Procedures
M. Agnes Jones Visitor Policy
Visitors are welcome in the school. However, we ask that you follow the Atlanta Board of Education Policy and criteria stated below. Additionally, we ask that you stop at the main office to sign in and secure a visitor’s badge that must be worn at all times while in the building or while on the school grounds. This rule will be strictly enforced to ensure the safety of students and staff.
To ensure the safety of students, the confidentiality of personal information, and the integrity of the learning environment, visitors are limited to:
• The parent/guardian of a current student;
• Other family members of a current student at the request of the parent/guardian; or
• Individuals with official business invited by the school, including, but not limited to, community volunteers, student mentors, and guest speakers.
Parents/guardians who request a classroom observation or a teacher conference shall provide at least 24 hours advanced notice. Visitors shall not distract the teacher from instruction or otherwise interrupt the instructional process.
Student and adult spectators at school events that are open to the public are expected to model good sportsmanship and citizenship. A visitor to a school or school event who violates this policy may be asked to leave the event and may lose the privilege of coming on campus and attending future school events. The presence of unauthorized visitors on school grounds or in facilities may constitute trespassing and may subject violators to criminal prosecution under the laws of the State of Georgia.
