Dear Horlick Families,

Per School District Policy, in an attempt to keep Horlick High School safe for our families, students, and staff, all parents and visitors wishing to gain entrance to the building Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:15 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., must enter through the tennis court doors located at the west end of the building (Entrance 7W).

We ask that you use the security call button located on the outside of the Tennis Court Doors.  The police officer at the visitor check-in desk will respond and ask your name, the reason for your visit, if you have an appointment with a Horlick staff member, and who that staff member is.

The officer will then allow you entrance into the building. Proceed to the visitor check-in desk where they will further assist you.

If you have an appointment, you will be asked to sign in as a visitor and will receive a visitor pass before you will be allowed to go into the building or into the Scarlet School Office.

Once your business is concluded, we ask that you return to the visitor check-in desk, sign out, and exit the building through the tennis court doors.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Horlick High School at 262-619-4300.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
