Let's Work Together to Keep our Students Safe
Please do your part to keep our students safe. Watch out for pedestrians and bicycles. Expect children to be walking or riding bikes to and from school or their assigned bus stop between the hours of 6am-9am and 1pm-5pm. Obey the speed limits and stay alert. Urge your friends and neighbors to use caution when driving before and after school. We must work together to keep our students safe.
Building a Positive Community
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is a process through which children and adults develop fundamental skills for life effectiveness, establishing positive relationships, and making responsible decisions. SEL is an intentional focus of Volusia County Schools that is strongly supported by the Superintendent. In the coming weeks, teachers will be implementing the Social Emotional Learning Program, Sanford Harmony. Students will learn how to connect with and include others to feel a sense of community, belonging, and working as a team. Focus themes include diversity, empathy, communication, problem solving and peer relationships. For more information, visit sanfordharmony.org and volusiasel.weebly.com
A new website is now available to help educate students and their parents about safe uses of the internet and the need for cyber safety. The Florida Association of District School Superintendents has joined Attorney General Bill McCollum in promoting the www.safeflorida.net/safesurf webpage to ntroduce all school age children the resources available to keep them safer while online. The site includes links to age appropriate websites, including games for elementary students, a place for teens to share their online experiences and information and tips to help parents learn the basic rules of internet safety.

Volunteering at your child's school can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. However, in the interest of protecting our students, there are certain procedures in place that must be carried out before anyone may come on campus, enter a classroom, or join a field trip.
A volunteer application must be turned in to the office at least six weeks before you can volunteer at our school or chaperone on field trips. Applications must have at least six weeks time to be processed and sent to the county office for clearance. If your name does not appear on Timbercrest's cleared volunteer list, then we are sorry to say that you may not volunteer or chaperone. There are no exceptions!
