Visiting the School

Outer doors are locked, with an intercom system at the front entrances. Before entering the school beyond the foyer, visitors (including parents and guardians) must check in at the school’s office.
 
Visitors should carry some form of photo identification and check in through the Raptor System. The Raptor Security System has the ability to scan drivers’ licenses or state-issued ID cards and perform background checks. All visitors must successfully complete the check before they will be allowed to enter the school beyond the foyer. 
 

Entry beyond lobby

Meridian’s policy does not allow parents or visitors to walk the hallways or sit in classrooms unless there is a specific need and prior approval and coordination is done through the administrator and teacher prior to the date. This complies with state law, prohibiting the interruption of classes during the school day. With the intense program that we have, it is also an effort to minimize distractions and maximize student learning, as well as to ensure confidentiality and the safety of our children. 
 
Teachers are teaching classrooms all day except for a state mandated duty-free lunch and a short planning period. Teachers at Meridian are also involved in before and after school duties, tutoring, etc. If you wish to speak to a teacher, please contact the office to leave a message to schedule an appointment.
