    All volunteer approvals will expire on June 30, 2020, requiring volunteers to renew. Your ID will not need to be scanned again unless your name has legally changed.

    For assistance, please visit the campus where you wish you volunteer.

    Emergency Response

    Parents Have a Key Role in Emergency Response

    During and following an emergency situation, school and district officials must act quickly and follow established emergency protocols to safeguard students and staff, secure schools, and communicate accurate information in a timely manner. Parents can assist greatly by helping with preparation before the emergency.

    Campus Evacuation: In the unlikely event of a campus evacuation, Babe James Center has been designated as our alternate site. We will assemble in the gymnasium. Parents/guardians would report to the cafeteria to pick-up students.

    Emergency Notification: In the unlikely event of an emergency, we would utilize our automated phone system to inform parents/guardians of incident.

    Drills: As part of our security plan, we are required to hold several mock drills addressing a variety of possible emergency situations, including fire drills. Should you arrive on campus during one of these drills, please follow the directives of our staff members.

    Visitor Policy: We welcome visitors on our campus. However, all visitors must check in at the main office prior to entering any part of our campus. All visitors must wear a visitor's badge while on campus and sign out prior to leaving.

Become an advocate through School Advisory Councils, parent teacher organizations or volunteer in your child’s classroom! Your actions will reinforce the value of education in your child’s life.



    Bully Proofing!​

    A bully is someone who takes advantage of someone else. Their goal is to achieve control over the victim. Sometimes a bully even wants to control a whole group of people. A child may become a bully to cover his or her weaknesses. Bullying can also be the result of having poor role models. If a child's parents bully him or her - or each other- the child thinks such behavior is normal.

    Bullying is considered a big problem and stopping bullies is extremely important in order to keep our kids safe at school, at home, and in the neighborhood. Parents, if you see any signs, talk to your child. Start with a general question: "Is anything bothering you?" Then get more specific. Stay calm and listen. Get as much information as you can. Stress that no one deserves to be bullied. Talk about how to avoid being an "easy target" for a bully. Demonstrate how body language tells a lot about a person. Posture, eye contact, and manner can say, "I'm strong and confident." You can also reinforce the social skills your child needs to make friends. Children who have friends and are confident are less likely to be bullied or to become bullies themselves. When you see your child treating others with kindness, praise him or her so that you reinforce that kind of behavior. Help your child understand how to avoid bullies or defuse situations if bullies can't be avoided. Stress that there may be times when the best thing to do is turn and walk, or run away and tell an adult. Parent Guide to Bullying
