Visiting & Messages

You are welcome to visit our school as either a guest or volunteer. If you want to visit and observe within a classroom, please:

  • Make arrangements in advance with the teacher and/or principal.
  • Check in at the office, sign the visitor log and receive a visitor badge.
  • Sign out at the office when you leave, and leave your visitor badge.
  • This addresses the safety needs for all students and the need to know what visitors are in the building at any given time.

Volunteers are needed at Emerald Heights. Become a volunteer today!

Telephone Messages

The school telephone is extremely busy during the day; therefore, telephone messages for children must be limited to emergencies only. It is often difficult to locate children at dismissal time with last minute instructions. If you have a situation arise where your child’s end of the day plan must change, please call the office at least 30 minutes before dismissal time. This ensures the office staff enough time to deliver the message to your child.

Children are not permitted to use the school phone to request permission to visit friends after school. These arrangements should be made before school or after arriving home.

Teachers are not usually available for phone calls during the teaching day. Please utilize their voice mail and/or email to communicate with them. They will make every effort to return your call when they are not instructing.
