School Safety

All Visitors Must Report to School Offices

All visitors are required to report to the school office for a "Visitor" or "Volunteer" badge prior to entering our school hallways and classrooms during daytime hours. Questions may be directed to the Superintendent of Schools.

As a school district, it is our basic responsibility to educate students. At Olivet Community Schools we plan to educate students while making them feel welcome, safe and comfortable in our schools. Our staff have been empowered with district "Values" and "Beliefs", a "Mission" and a "Vision", coupled with "Core Attitudes" and "District Goals and Strategies" to carry out the everyday business of educating students. But we want parents and students to know that their well-being and safety are just as important to us here in Olivet.
