Kindergarten teachers Jenny Palmer and Emily Schooler are excited for the first day of school.

Parent Badges & School Entry 

The Barry Family Campus requires that all adults provide a photo ID to enter the building. The Sabes JCC and Heilicher are updating security protocols to make it easier to drop off and pick up your child(ren), while making the campus more secure. Shortly, all parents will receive new access cards. Detailed instructions will be given at that time. Until then, please bring a photo ID or last year's Heilicher badge when entering the building. 

Drop-off at the beginning of the school day will be at the north entrance of the Education Wing (around the back of the building). This is a drop-off entrance only; parking for any period of time is not allowed. K-6 students are not to be dropped off at the south (front) entrance. Grades 7/8 students can enter/exit through the south entrance.

If there is a need to walk your K-6 student(s) into school, you must park in the south parking lot, escort your child(ren) through the south (main) entrance, and show your picture ID.
