We recommend this process is completed before the start of school. Background checks can take between 5-10 business days to complete.
Background checks: A SafeVisitor background check will be required for anyone who visits our schools, including family members and friends of our students. If you are planning on being a lunch guest, attending classroom parties, volunteering in the classroom, being a room parent or attending any of the field trips as a chaperone, a background check is required. You may come into the school office without a background check, however, you will not be allowed into the rest of the school.
