Children will only be released to adults listed on the child’s contact list which may be updated via your Parent Portal account. Teachers are not allowed to release students early without sending them to the office first.
Classrooms Visitors and Volunteers: Visitors and volunteers are welcome at Mission. All volunteers need to be approved by the board of education and must have a TB test. All visitors and volunteers must sign in at the front office upon arrival and must present an ID that will be scanned through our Raptor system. Prior approval from the teacher must be obtained before visiting a classroom. Please call the office for information on how to become a classroom volunteer.
Campus Safety: Safety is our number one priority. Thank you for helping us maintain a safe campus at all times.
- Secured campus – Only students and school employees will be allowed to enter the campus gates before school. In addition, students will come out to the front of the campus to be picked up at dismissal.
- Pets are not allowed on campus unless they are service dogs.
- The most northern parking lot is for busses and staff parking ONLY. Please do not drop off or pick up students there.
- The most southern parking lot is for dropping off and picking up students. Thank you for not leaving your car unattended unless it is parked in a parking stall. The lane next to the curb and the middle lane may be used for drop off and pick up. Students will be escorted to the cars in the middle lane. Please do not wave them over to you or allow them to leave the car without an escort. Staff will be present to assist. We do not want children walking between cars.
