Visitors are Welcome!

Welcome to CIS!   

To ensure the safety and security of all students, staff and visitors to our buildings, Cambridge-Isanti Schools has implemented the following visitor safety procedures district wide:


  • Enter through the designated visitor entry and report to the main office. Identify yourself and present photo identification. If you are requesting to see or remove a student from a school building, your name must be on that student’s emergency contact list.
  • Visitors will be asked to verify their identity by showing office staff a form of photo identification such as a driver’s license or state ID card. Your ID will be scanned into our visitor management data base and a photo visitor badge will be printed and used as your visitor credential for the day. You will be issued a colored lanyard with a plastic sleeve that will hold your credential. The lanyard must be placed around your neck with your visitor badge visible at all times during your visit. At the completion of your visit you will be required to check back in to the main office to return your visitor badge and to sign out as a visitor. Office staff will retain your photo ID for the duration of your visit. Your photo ID will be returned to you when you sign out as a visitor.
  • Please be aware that our staff has been trained to challenge visitors who are in the building and not wearing an ID badge. Please be advised of school district POLICY #903 which outlines that an individual or group may be denied permission to visit a school if visitor(s) do not comply with the school district procedures or if the visit is not in the best interest of students, employees or the school district.
  • Children will not be dismissed from a classroom or allowed to have a visitor without proper notification from the school office. Visits to classrooms are limited to one hour and should be arranged with the teacher ahead of time.
