    All parents/visitors are requested to report to the General Office first before...

    The following is a notice on the beam at the entrance of a school. I find the wording too long-winded. Could a native speaker rephrase the notice so that unnecessary words are removed? Thanks.

    All parents/visitors are requested to report to the General Office first before proceeding to other areas of the school premises.

    Thank you.

    By order
    The Principal

    I would do so as follows. Is it OK?

    Parents/visitors have to report to the General Office before proceeding to other premises of the school.


    Thanks again.

    No. There is only one premises.

    "All visitors must report to the General Office"
