The Ken-Ton School District welcomes and values the contributions of the entire school district community. Certain limitations and requirements are in place for all visitors while school is in session in order to safeguard students and protect the integrity of the educational environment. Please note that visitors are any individuals who are not a regular staff member or student of the school.
Visitors are expected to follow the guidelines of Project SAVE, the Ken-Ton School District Code of Conduct, while on school grounds. You can find Project SAVE on the school district website at www.ktufsd.org/ProjectSave.
For your convenience, the following general guidelines have been provided:
- Visitors are expected to respect and comply with reasonable requests and directions given by school personnel while on school grounds. At times, a building administrator or designated staff member may choose to escort visitors to and from their destination.
- Visitors, like staff, are expected to exemplify and reinforce the behavior that is expected of students. Therefore, visitors are expected to conduct themselves in a respectful and courteous manner toward school personnel, and can expect to be treated in a respectful and courteous manner by school personnel.
- Visitors and staff alike will value our diverse educational community; respect the rights, religious beliefs, practices, beliefs, and values of individuals and families; and work together to ensure the safety, well-being, and educational development of all students.
- Visitors are welcome and encouraged to ask questions, express concerns, and provide feedback of any kind. This may be done with a school administrator, classroom teacher, or another designated staff member in private, where such conversations will not cause a distraction for students. Please understand that the time available for meetings is limited, and staff will not always be available to respond immediately to an email or phone call, but will respond in a timely manner.
- Visitors must refrain from speaking to or disciplining a child who is not theirs. Visitor concerns regarding children who are not theirs must be taken to school administrator, classroom teacher, or another designated staff member in private.
- Visitors must refrain from conduct that is prohibited by Project SAVE, the Ken-Ton School District Code of Conduct, which can be found at www.ktufsd.org/ProjectSAVE. Prohibited conduct includes (but is not limited to):
- Conduct that is disorderly or disruptive
- Acting in a violent or threatening manner
- Engaging in any activity that endangers the safety, morals, health, or welfare of others, such as discrimination, harassment, bullying and intimidation
- Instigating/encouraging others to violate the Code of Conduct
- Violating the Zero Tolerance Policy, which prohibits the use of illegal drugs, tobacco, and alcohol on school grounds
- Visitors, like staff, are expected to exemplify and reinforce acceptable dress standards which are articulated in the Student Appearance Code, and to follow the Electronic Communication Device Code.
