Palisades Park Public Schools Visitors Policy

February 15, 2018
Dear Palisades Park Community,
In collaboration with the Palisades Park Police Department, I would like to take a moment to advise you that effective February 21st, 2018 no visitors are to enter any school building with students during arrival. In addition, all visitors to our schools will need to have an appointment to enter the building. (If you require assistance, an appointment must be made after the start of the school day.)
At the buzzer, it is expected that all visitors will state the purpose of their visit and/or specify with whom they have an appointment. All visitors will still be required to show photo identification to the security personnel at each respective building for entrance.
It is imperative that visitors do not hold the door open for others behind them. Each visitor must be acknowledged individually through the buzzer system.
If you must drop off an item for a student (lunch, homework, etc.) you will be directed to deposit that item in a bin outside the main entry.
