All volunteers are under the supervision of the building principal and are immediately responsible to the classroom staff member with whom the volunteer is assigned. If a volunteer has a question about school policies or procedures, it should be discussed with the appropriate school personnel and not outside the school. Volunteers should feel free to discuss concerns with the classroom teacher, principal or volunteer coordinator.
Suggested Guidelines For Volunteers
- Sign in at the office upon entering and leaving the school when volunteering.
- Wear a volunteer name tag at all times while in the building.
- Record hours on the Volunteer Time Sheet.
- Keep volunteer appointments and be prompt.
- If a volunteer appointment cannot be kept, the proper person should be notified as far in advance as possible or a replacement should be found.
- A volunteer’s work is confidential. Students should not be discussed with anyone except the appropriate school personnel.
Remember to sign in at the office and wear your name tag – Thank you!
