Volunteer Training
A mandatory training presentation has been posted on the school web site along with a participation confirmation. Our volunteers will continue to be welcomed in the building until training is complete, but the deadline will be January 1, 2015. If you have not participated in the training as of that date, you will not be able to volunteer until you do so. The training also applies to field trip chaperones. Thank you for your support of our procedures, and please also mark your calendars for June 5 as that will be our annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon.
