Procedures & Guidelines

Volunteer Guidelines

All volunteers are expected to abide by the following:

  • Provide evidence of a negative TB test within the previous three years.
  • Maintain confidentiality of all students and staff.
  • Dress appropriately for the activity.
  • Obey all emergency procedures.
  • Never be alone with a student in an isolated area.
  • Honor the teacher’s and students’ time and keep your commitments. Contact the teacher or the school office as soon as possible if you will be late or absent.
  • Sign in at the school office, wear a volunteer sticker, and log the volunteer hours.

Copy Room Guidelines

We welcome volunteers in the copy room. There are just a few basic rules:

  • No preschool children are allowed in the copy room.  There are hot laminating machines, paper cutters, electric pencil sharpeners and other machines that could harm a young child or be damaged inadvertently.
  • Before school, during recess and lunch breaks, and immediately after school times are reserved for teachers. The copy room is available for parent volunteers at all other times.
  • Leave the room tidy.
  • If a machine jams or breaks, tell an office staff member right away
