Visitors on Campus
Parents and others are welcome to visit New Caney ISD schools. For the safety of those within the school setting, all visitors are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of courtesy and conduct. Disruptive behavior will not be permitted. All visitors to a campus must report to the front office to sign in and receive a visitor pass to wear while on campus.
All lunch visitors must follow established check-in and check-out procedures. Due to space and safety concerns, lunch visitors are restricted to the following:
Parents/Guardians who wish to visit their child’s classroom must make arrangements at least one day in advance with the principal, principal’s designee, and/or the teacher. Parents/Guardians in classrooms are there as observers and should not become involved in discussions or classroom activities unless invited to do so by the teacher. If there is a need for a discussion with the teacher, a conference must be scheduled outside of instructional time.
To maintain an orderly educational environment, parents/guardians should not bring siblings or other children with them for classroom observations. Cell phones and paging devices must be turned off while in instructional settings.
Raptor Visitor Tracking System
For the safety and security of your child, New Caney ISD has implemented a visitor tracking system in all of its schools. The purpose of this system is to ensure that adult visitors on campus do not pose a threat to any students.
Upon entering you child’s campus, you will be asked to present one of the following forms of identification in order to move beyond the front desk:
Your license or identification card will be scanned. Once cleared you will be issued a visitor’s badge, which must be worn while you are on campus. Upon your departure the visitor’s badge must be returned to the front office.
In addition to having all campus visitors scan their identification at the front desk when they visit, we are asking all parents to allow their children to walk to class in the morning on their own. For elementary students, there will be an exception during the first week of school so you can assist your child in learning their way to class.
Checking Students Out of School
New Caney ISD is committed to protecting students entrusted to its custody. Campus administrators exercise caution in releasing students during the school day. These procedures are followed at each campus when students are checked out of school:
Students who leave campus at any time without parental permission and administrative approval are subject to disciplinary action.
Emergency Information and Procedure
In case of emergency, illness, or accident to the student, the parent/guardian will be notified first. If the campus is unable to contact the parent/guardian, the school is authorized to call the Emergency Contacts as designated on the enrollment card by the parent/guardian. The parent/guardian is responsible for providing transportation to obtain medical treatment. If a student is transported by ambulance, the parent/guardian is responsible for the cost. In the event physicians, other persons named on this card, or parent/guardian cannot be contacted, school officials are hereby authorized to take whatever action is deemed necessary, in their judgment, for the health of the aforesaid student. Emergency contacts are only authorized access to information regarding the student and authority to transport the student in an emergency situation occurring at the school when the parent/guardian cannot be reached. At any other time, emergency contacts have no rights regarding the student and must have a written authorization from the parent/guardian for a specific date/time to pick up the student from school.
