volunteers. To acquaint you with our policies, procedures, and practices. To prepare for volunteer services during the 2017-2018 school year. Volunteers? An integral part of our school program. Working with individual students or small groups of students under the

discretion of the teacher. Assisting the teacher with a variety of organizational tasks Chaperoning a field trip Completing volunteer work at home Babysitting for a parent while they are volunteering. Why Volunteers are Important O When families are involved in school, O

O O O children do better in school. Builds bridges between home, school, and community Helps parents better understand the schooling process Greatly assists teachers! Kids learn by example: when families are involved, kids are more likely to

grow up and be volunteers themselves. Scheduling Teachers and/teams will be creating a volunteer schedule based on their specific needs and classroom activities. Please consider volunteering for our specials teachers as well. Due to limited bus space, only a few parents, per class, will be chosen to chaperone each trip.

Schedules will be sent out within the next few weeks or contact the classroom teacher if interested Please follow the schedule. If you have extra time for volunteering, always contact the teacher first for approval. We need you! O Teachers rely on you to be a key player in the

instructional program. O Please call the school if you are unable to volunteer on your scheduled day. 240-236-1700 Discipline Please allow staff members to discipline

students we have a school-wide policy. If you are working with a child or a small group and difficulty arises, let the teacher know immediately. Remember that when challenging situations arise, it is the behavior of the student we disapprove of, not the student. Please do not distribute personal notes, tokens or prizes without teacher approval.

Sign SECURITY In In compliance with the law, all visitors coming into the school must sign in and wear an identification badge. Volunteer names will be cross-referenced with the sheriffs department data base of sex offenders as well as with the YSES

database of custody agreements. The visitor login computer is located in the front office and logs your service hours Your hours of service make a difference! Confidentiali A priority! ty Information about a student or teacher should never be discussed outside of the

school or with another person unless it is with a necessary staff member. Contact the teacher or an administrator with any concerns that you may have. Your ability to volunteer at YSES depends on your discretion. Thank you for your help in keeping YSES information or data secure. Why everyone? Why every year? Why chaperones?

O Student safety and confidentiality are paramount at YSES. O Chaperoning is the most intense and responsibility driven volunteer assignment which one can have. Teachers do not have direct access to chaperones during the trip. Food Allergies/Sensitivities O Awareness is a necessity. Simply

restricting consumption is not enough, because any contact with an unsafe food, cross contamination, and hidden trace ingredients can also cause an allergic reaction. Food Allergy Precautions Food items of any kind should never be

distributed to any child for any reason. Please refrain from snacking and eating in the classroom or at work stations due to allergy concerns. If a child complains to you that they arent feeling well, please inform the teacher immediately. If helping in the cafeteria please be sure wash your hands thoroughly before working with any child. Respecting Instructional

Time Please do not use your volunteer time to meet with the teacher to discuss your childs progress. If you need to meet with a teacher, please set up a different time and place that is convenient to both. Please respect the teachers planning time and other special duties. Liability Coverage
