Visitor Information

  • For the safety and welfare of our students, the school building is locked during the school day. All Gates Chili Schools require visitors to sign in at the Main Office using our electronic management system. All visitors will be required to have their identification scanned on their first visit. Please note that proper government-issued identification is required each time a visit is made to school, even if staff in the Main Office recognize you. You will receive a badge that must be worn visibly for the duration of the visit. At the end of the visit, please return the badge to the Main Office before singing out of our visitors’ log.

    All visitors are expected to model the Spartan Way as outlined in our district’s Code of Conduct and Character while on campus. Please see Board of Education Policy 3210 for more information about visiting our schools.

    Visiting at Mealtimes  

    Parents and Guardians are welcome to eat lunch with their children. Cafeteria guests must make an appointment at least 24 hours in advance and must sign in at the Main Office upon arriving at our school This is in accordance with the district policy. We kindly ask that families leave five (5) minutes prior to the end of the lunchtime. This assists our cafeteria staff as they work to transition students back to their classroom teachers in a safe and timely manner.

    Outside food may not be brought into the cafeteria to be shared with other students. Parents/guardians are encouraged to purchase school lunches when visiting. Thank you for your help in creating a healthy, clean, and fun dining experience for your child.

    Birthday Celebrations

    Please be advised that we do not celebrate birthdays with food items, per our district’s policy. Please consider alternative ways to acknowledge our students on their birthdays such as pencils, erasers, stickers, coloring pages/other crafts, requesting their favorite book be read aloud in class, and more.
