School Safety

Safety and Security for our School Grounds

The Main Office Gate will not open before 8:05 am and parents are not allowed to drop off their children prior to that time at the Main Gate.  We have been having improper student drop-offs at the Main Gate and it has slowly become a chaotic, security problem.  The Main Office Gate is to be used ONLY for tardy students, after the 8:05 am bell, and parent volunteers/visitors.  All students will enter through the San Feliciano Gate, the DeLaOsa Gate and the Kinder Yards before the tardy bell.  Our office staff has a lot to do to get the school day ready, and we cannot successfully account for students and visitors entering the Main Gate prior to 8:05 am.  We appreciate your cooperation in making our school as safe and efficient as it can be.

 

As a reminder, parents are not allowed on campus until the school day begins after 8:05 am and you must enter through the Main Office only.  We gladly will assist you after the school day has begun.

 

 

Volunteer Guidelines

We value our volunteers.  You are an important part of our program.  We appreciate you helping us to ensure the same high quality programming at our school from year to year.

 

Campus Access

Volunteers are granted permission to campus by the Principal.  Please provide us with a completed application and TB Test / X-Ray, so that you may be considered for volunteer service.

 

Service

The number of volunteers selected for service is based on need and therefore vary each year.  Your needed support may be in the areas of physical education, art instruction, science instruction, literacy and math assistance, photocopying, support with technology, computer or library skills, Kinder Gate Duty and Valet, Inventory Materials/Equipment, etc.

 

Badge

Once selected for service and the application process is complete, you will be issued a volunteer badge.  This badge must be presented at the time of entry and worn while on campus.  It will remain in your care for safe-keeping.  You will not be able to participate without your badge.  Volunteers will be assigned to a teacher who will designate your activities.  Please note to increase our security, you will only be allowed on campus for the days/times assigned.

 

Guidelines

Once the activity is over, volunteers are expected to leave promptly and sign out of the log-book.

 

Please follow the following guidelines to ensure smooth operations of all programs:

  • Do not remain on the yard during recess or lunch nor in the cafeteria area during recess/lunch
  • Do not use student bathrooms
  • Do not seek out your child as this may distract him/her from school activities

 

We thank you for all you do to help provide the best public education possible.
