Visitor Policy

“Safety First” for our Students 

Mary Shadd Public School has a Visitors’ Policy to ensure the safety of our students and staff. The policy is monitored and reviewed every year and its purpose is:

  • To enhance the safety of students, staff and volunteers at school, while maintaining a welcoming environment.
  • To easily identify visitors, volunteers and parents in the school.
  • To help staff identify possible intruders in the school.
  • To provide administration with the names of people in the school in case of an emergency.


  • All visitors, including parents are requested to enter through the main doors and report to the school office upon arrival.
  • All visitors, including parents, are asked to wait at the school office or outside the school for their children. Please do not proceed to the classrooms to pick up a child, deliver items, or give your child a message.
  • Visitors are to sign-out at the office and return their visitor tag before leaving.
  • If you want to speak with a teacher, please make an appointment at the office.

Thank you for your cooperation.
