VISITORS AND PARENT VOLUNTEERS
For the safety of all students, all volunteers working with students must complete paperwork and provide a copy of a government issued ID as per District policies. All visitors/volunteers must check in to the office to sign in and receive a visitor sticker. The visitor sticker must be worn at all times when on school grounds. Please refrain from using the teacher’s lounge/workroom during teacher breaks.
In order to effectively manage students during recess and lunch and to ensure their safety in their less restrictive environment, our campus is closed to visitors on our playground. Should you have a special request to visit your student during recess or lunch, you will need to notify administration.
If you wish to observe a class, please contact the teacher or principal at least one day in advance to arrange a time to observe. We ask that you limit each visit to a maximum of 20 minutes to minimize disruption to instruction. If you have questions or wish to conference with a teacher when you visit, please arrange for an appointment outside of school hours. Teachers cannot hold meetings during instructional time.
Volunteering in the Classroom
You are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer in your child’s classroom. Please feel free to offer any time, energy, and talents you have available. Making a connection between the school and the home will show your child that you believe that education is important. If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom, please contact your child's teacher and the office staff can provide you information regarding registration requirements.
To be a successful parent volunteer, please:
- Be punctual and consistent. If you are not able to come at your scheduled time, please call the office or send a note with your child.
- Check in at the office.
- Please leave siblings at home.
- Remember instructional time is always occurring in the classroom. Do not interrupt lessons or engage the teacher in conversations during class time.
- Respect confidentiality.
