It could very well be school policy to limit access for safety reasons regardless of whom is trying to enter the school. (after all they can't have people randomly wandering the premises). Most schools at minimum have visiting hours for times to see the children. Contact the local school and find out their visitation policy. As far as being active in the child's life, maybe outside of school would be a better choice such as lunch if the school permits it.
