Visiting the School:
Visitors are welcome. To ensure the safety of our children, the San Juan Unified School District requires all visitors check in to the office, sign in and get a visitors pass. All visitors are to state their relationship to the child, show identification and wear a visitor badge while on campus. During the first two weeks of school kindergarten visitation needs to be arranged with the teacher as students at this age need time to bond with the teacher. Visitation is for adults as other children may disrupt instruction. Twenty-four hour notice is appreciated for class visitations.
Release During Class Hours:
If it is necessary to take your child out during the school day, you must sign him/her out in the office. The adult checking the child out must be on the child’s emergency card and state their relationship to the child, show identification. The office staff will call the child to the office for pick up as not to disrupt instruction. To add an adult to your child’s emergency card, you must come into the office.

District Policy on Use of Students in Photos and Video
Photos and video footage of students add significantly to the communication value of district and school publications, television productions, and web sites. It is the district's desire to share the achievements and recognition earned by students with the broader community. This effort can be aided by the use of photos or video footage showing students involved in the classroom and school-related activities.
Photos & Video
Unless notified in writing of an objection by a parent, legal guardian, or student of age 18, photographs and video footage of students and/or names may be posted in district-produced materials including printed publications, television productions, and websites.If parents do not wish photographs or videos of their student to be used in these materials, they should complete a Photo/Video Opt-Out form available at school offices or via the link below. Please be aware that opt-out requests are valid for the current school year and must be renewed at the start of the next school year.If an opt-out form is filed, district and school staff members will ALSO request news media not interview your student or film/photograph your student. While local news media typically honor such requests, the district does not have legal authority to prevent your student from talking with media or restricting who media outlets film or photograph. You are encouraged to have a discussion with your student about your wishes should members of the news media request to interview them.If photos or video of students or staff are going to be created, maintained or displayed by a third party where the District or school will not have direct control of the materials, then a written release form is required.
