The district previously barred all food from being brought into the classroom; now only home-made food is prohibited while store-bought food is allowed. School officials will also be able to bring food to their classrooms and parents can drop off lunches to their children.
Valley View placed a moratorium Monday on adult access to students during the school day and for before school breakfast programs while its visitor procedures were being reviewed.
In an e-mail Tuesday, Superintendent James Mitchem said community volunteers and visitors will be admitted. Each visitor will be required to sign in, state the purpose of the visit and sign out when leaving. Visitors will be restricted to the area in which the event or the volunteer effort is taking place. School administrators will set the parameters for each visit. All current activities during school and after school will continue as planned.
Mitchem said there was some concern and confusion about locking classroom doors during school. He clarified the doors would only be locked on the outside.
Mitchem will hold a town hall meeting Thursday to discuss the new procedures and general safety issues for the district. The meeting will start at 6 p.m. at Lukancic Middle School, 725 Normantown Road in Romeoville.
