Visiting Our School

 

To keep students and staff safe, SDPC requires visitors, volunteers, and vendors to enter through each school’s office and sign in to KeepnTrack.  You will also be asked to show your picture ID to the receptionist, wear your KeepnTrack badge while you are in our schools and sign out of KeepnTrack before you leave. Thank you for your help in following our procedures for safety in all our schools!

If visiting the classroom, parents must make arrangements with the teacher ahead of time.
