SCHOOL ENTRANCE PROCEDURE
Parcells is locked during the school day for safety purposes. From 8:30 AM – 3:17 PM (9:00 – 3:17 on Mondays) anyone wishing to enter the building must be ‘buzzed’ into the building. You can do that at three doors: the main front door, the receiving room door, and the 6th grade door off the back parking lot along Sunningdale. At these three doors, you will see a small metallic box mounted on the wall with a small camera screen and a doorbell button. Press the doorbell button and remain in front of the box so the office can see you. When you hear a response from someone in the office, please announce your name and reason for your visit and you will be ‘buzzed’ into the building.
Please proceed to the office to register.
Students who arrive late to school or who are arriving to school after an appointment will also have to be ‘buzzed’ into the school by following the same procedures.
After school is dismissed at 3:18 PM, the receiving room is unlocked allowing access to the school for the afternoon and evening. All other doors will be locked and will be unlocked only when events are scheduled for late afternoon and/or evening access.

6. Don’t make a right turn into the parking lot from the south bound traffic lane of Sunningdale—this lane is for thru-traffic only. (Fines for “Improper lane usage or improper turn”: $110.00)
