    Below is a set of guidelines and expectations for volunteers: 

    • Volunteers must complete an ICHAT before being allowed to volunteer. Click HERE to complete the form.

    *Wearing proper identification while volunteering.

    *Maintaining the confidentiality of each student.

    *Reporting all behavior concerns to the lead teacher and/or building principal.

    *Refraining from disciplining or touching students in a corrective manner.
