I appreciate the schools concern and attention to the security of staff and students. How ever as a grandmother, and one that is very involved with my family, I was offended by the way I was treated by office staff when I went in to give something to my granddaughter. I felt disrespected and unwelcomed. I always thought the school had and open door policy when it came to the people on the parents list of approved contacts. Hopefully this was just a misunderstanding and will not detour concerned family members from visiting their school.
