Closed Campus

As a reminder, Nelson is a Closed Campus.

  • To keep all children safe, only students are allowed beyond the gates before school, during school or after school. This means no one is allowed to stand in line or wait in front of the classrooms prior to school or to be on the playground area before, during, or after school.
  • Volunteers who are helping that day will sign in at the office and report to their volunteer duty.
  • Anyone on campus during this time who has not properly checked in through the office will be asked to report back to the office to check in. A volunteer badge must be visible.
  • Helpers will continue to be available to walk our younger children to their lines in the morning, particularly at the beginning of the school year.

Having a closed campus increases the safety and security of your child by minimizing the amount of people on campus. It allows us to ascertain that the people who are on campus are authorized to be here, and to reduce the possibility that a stranger could slip onto the school grounds without notice.

We truly value you and want you to continue to feel welcomed when you come to participate in school activities or volunteer in your child’s classroom. So, we encourage parents to volunteer in an official capacity before and after school.
