Visitors on Campus

Visitors on Campus - Guidelines

Parents and others are welcome to visit Nacogdoches ISD schools. For the
safety of those within the school setting, all visitors are expected to
demonstrate the highest standards of courtesy and conduct. Disruptive
behavior will not be permitted. All visitors to a campus must report to the
front office to sign in and receive a visitor pass to wear while on campus.

Lunch Visitors

All lunch visitors must follow established check-in and check-out procedures.
Due to space and safety concerns, lunch visitors are restricted to the

Secondary: Lunch visitors will be restricted to parents/guardians,
grandparents (with written permission), and campus mentors (unless
individuals are a part of a limited public forum).

Secondary mentors may not use visitation at lunch with an assigned student
mentee as an opportunity to create a limited open forum or limited public
forum. A violation to this restriction may result in the mentor losing the privilege of visiting during lunch.

Classroom Observations

Parents/Guardians who wish to visit their child’s classroom must make
arrangements at least one day in advance with the principal, principal’s
designee, and/or the teacher. Parents/Guardians in classrooms are there as
observers and should not become involved in discussions or classroom
activities unless invited to do so by the teacher. If there is a need for a
discussion with the teacher, a conference must be scheduled outside of
instructional time.

To maintain an orderly educational environment, parents/guardians should
not bring siblings or other children with them for classroom observations.
Cell phones and paging devices must be turned off while in instructional

Raptor Visitor Tracking System

For the safety and security of your child, Nacogdoches ISD has implemented
a visitor tracking system in all of its schools. The purpose of this system is to
ensure that adult visitors on campus do not pose a threat to any students.
Upon entering your child’s campus, you will be asked to present one of the
following forms of identification in order to move beyond the front desk:

- Valid Drivers License (any state)
- State-Issued I.D. Card
- Work Visa
- Green Card

Your license or identification card will be scanned. Once cleared you will be
issued a visitor’s badge (example below), which must be worn while you are on campus.

Upon your departure, the visitor’s badge must be returned to the front office.
In addition to having all campus visitors scan their identification at the front
desk when they visit, we are asking all parents to allow their children to walk
to class in the morning on their own. For elementary students, there will be
an exception during the first week of school so you can assist your child in
learning their way to class.
