If the first week of school is any indicator, it looks like a great year. While I can attribute that to so many factors, the one that always seems to stand out is how well this community bands together to make all feel a part of this great school. For those new to the Ivanhoe community, the following few notes are steps we have implemented over the years to make the campus safe and that focus on student learning.
At the beginning and end of the day, the Auburn gates will be locked. The only exit/entrance areas will be through Herkimer Street gate or main office door.
If you are delivering late materials for your child, please leave them in the office. A classroom monitor will be called to pick-up the lunch, homework, or backpack. This will minimize disruption during instruction.
All visitors/volunteers need either a volunteer badge or a yellow visitor pass before entering the campus (after the initial drop-off period).
Beginning this week, we will be implementing the Student Only Ramps at the beginning of the day. PLEASE say goodbye to your students on the lower yard. It is difficult to secure the campus when we delay goodbyes for those 5-10 minutes as we walk up the ramps. This goes for classes on the lower yard as well. It is often near impossible for Rooms 15-19 to get into classrooms with all the last minute goodbyes.
