Visitor's Policy

Visitors  To The School

Access to particular classrooms or other instructional areas of the school will be restricted unless deemed necessary by the principal. Because classrooms and other instructional areas are the most vulnerable to disruption, specific conditions may be imposed upon visitors, including but not limited to:
  • Remaining in a designated place or seat.
  • Refraining from speaking to students/teacher while the class or activity is in session.
  • Limiting the duration of the visit to particular times or lengths of times.
  • Limiting the activities of the visitor to a particular purpose(s).
  • Designating particular routes of travel in the building or on the school grounds.
  • Requiring that the dress and grooming of the visitor be consistent with the dress code for the students and employees in the building.
  • Visitors wishing to conference with teachers or administrators during the course of the school day will need to make arrangements in advance.
  • Visits may be prohibited at certain times such as the first and last weeks of school, immediately before or after vacations or other breaks and while standardized testing or other student assessments are being conducted.

Lunch-time Visitors

  • Parents who come to school to eat lunch will sit at the designated table with their child.
  • The sharing of food with other students is prohibited.
  • We ask that parents respect the cafeteria rules and the directives of the adult on duty.
  • In order to facilitate the timely dismissal of students from the cafeteria and to allow for tables to be prepared for the next lunch period, parents are asked to exit the cafeteria five minutes before the end of the lunch period.
  • Parents will not be allowed to walk students back to class after lunch.
  • There will be no lunch visitors for the first week of school. This will allow our campuses to make sure lunchroom procedures are understood and consistently practiced by our students.
  • The building principal has the authority to exclude from the school premises any person who disrupts or who appears likely to become a disruption to the educational program. Any such individual shall be directed to leave the school premises immediately and law enforcement authorities shall be called if necessary.
  • All school visitors must comply at all times with Board of Education policies, administrative rules and school regulations.

General Visitors

Parents and others are welcome to visit district schools. For the safety of those within the school and to avoid disruption of instructional time, all visitors must first report to the main office and must comply with all applicable district policies and procedures. When arriving on campus, all parents and other visitors should be prepared to show identification.

 Visits to individual classrooms during instructional time are permitted only with approval of the principal and teacher and only so long as their duration or frequency does not interfere with the delivery of instruction or disrupt the normal school environment. Even if the visit is approved prior to the visitor’s arrival, the individual must check in at the main office first.

 All visitors are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of courtesy and conduct; disruptive behavior will not be permitted.

Visitors Participating in Special Programs for Students

Anna High School will make time available for representatives from colleges and universities and other higher education institutions, prospective employers, and military recruiters to present information to interested students.

Volunteers (All Grade Levels)

We appreciate the efforts of parent and grandparent volunteers who are willing to serve our district and students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the campus principal ( for more information and to complete an application.
