Signing in and Out

All volunteers should enter through the front doors and proceed directly to the main office. For the safety of our children, all volunteers must sign-in at the school office upon arrival. Volunteer name tags are available for you to wear so that you can be properly identified in the school.

By signing in, your are making it possible for school personnel to locate you in the event of an emergency. It is important that you write your name legibly, as well as the location where you will be working, and the type of work you will be doing.

It is also important to remember to sign- out when you leave. Your hours are recorded and counted. if you volunteer at home on projects for teachers, school staff, or the PTO please keep track of your volunteer hours. You can record them by either adding them to the volunteer book the next time you are in school.

If you work on an evening or weekend event at a school where access to the volunteer book is not available, the person in charge of the event will provide a sheet to record your volunteer time.

Other miscellaneous Items

Staff restrooms are available for use by adult volunteers.

If you are unable to come at your scheduled time or if you will be late, please call the school and leave a message. Remember that someone is counting on you.

Turn Off cell phone ringers when in classrooms.
