Signs on the doors of our building state clearly that all visitors to Cedar Heights must register in the main office. This is to protect our campus and you. Students are NOT permitted to bring visitors to school. The climate of our communities continues to change, and in response to that and due to concerns regarding campus security for our students, parents and others wishing to visit classrooms must submit a request to administration 24 hours prior to the proposed visit. Request forms are available in the main office. Permission will be approved or denied based on:: • Purpose of the visit • Potential Disruption of the Educational Environment • Other circumstances that may apply
Procedure for Requesting to View/Obtain School-based Secure Assessments: Parent/guardians may view school-based secured assessments after they have been administered to students, in order to support their individual students learning. In order to view a secured school-based assessment, parents/guardians must contact the appropriate classroom teacher with a request to view the assessment. The teacher will make arrangements with the parents/guardians to view the assessment within 48 hours of the request. Parents desiring to receive a copy of a secured assessment must agree in advance and in writing, that the assessment will be used only for work pertaining to their own student by signing the “Request to View Secured Assessment” form. The Secured Assessment forms are located in the Main Office and in the Staff Handbook. The requests will be kept in the Main Office.
