NHS Visitors Policy

Nacogdoches High School is considered a closed campus during school hours. It is our desire to have a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff members, and those visiting our campus.   

For the protection of students:

1.  Student visitors are not allowed. All visitors must check in at the front desk with the receptionist or other office personnel. 

2.  Students may not leave campus without checking out in the attendance office.  Students must have a note or the office must have a phone contact with parent and/or guardian before the student leaves campus.  On testing days parents/guardians will be required to come into the school and check out their student.  No phone calls will be accepted.  Violators are subject to student discipline action and any absences will be considered truancies. 

3.  Nacogdoches High School students are not permitted on elementary or junior high campuses during the school day without written permission from that school's administration.

4.  The parking lot, track area, tennis courts, and all practice fields are off limits to students except when arriving or leaving school; hallways, back and  front of the school are considered off limits during lunchtime.

5.   The NHS office will issue a visitor's badge after screening for the following:

  Purpose for visiting

  Destination

  Who they are visiting (accountability)

  Approval from person being visited

After receiving the badge, (which will include the visitors name, destination, and time checked in) the visitor will be asked to sign in.  After completing their visit, he/she will be asked to return the badge to the front office and sign out.
