Visiting our School

● Visitors are always welcome at Okatie Elementary.
● Classroom observations require a 24-hour notice to the teacher. Please contact an administrator to schedule.
● All visitors must have a valid driver’s license to scan for access into the building and wear a visitor’s badge.
● Parents may not walk their student to class after the first two weeks. This reduces disruption to learning and to help your child separate from you.
● This is a smoke free campus. Please do not smoke on our campus or in car rider line.
● Cellphones should not be used when visiting classrooms or eating lunch with your student. Be respectful of students and staff.

Although we welcome visits from families, volunteers, and community members, the safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority. All visitors will be required to sign-in before entering our building, using our Ident-a-Kid visitor management software. When visiting our school, plan to do the following:

  1. Bring your Driver’s License or Photo ID
  2. Enter the building ONLY through the main office entrance. You will need to ring the doorbell and wait for the door to be opened by a front office employee. Students, teachers, and other staff members are NOT allowed to let visitors into the building.
  3. In the front office, your Photo ID will be scanned via our Ident-a-Kid software, and checked against public offender registries.
  4. Visitors will receive a temporary ID sticker that must be worn for the entirety of your visit.
  5. When exiting the school, return your temporary ID sticker to the front office to sign out.
