As we welcome volunteers to school each day we must also take great consideration for student safety. Please understand that our protocols are in place to do just that, protect All children.
Mini Background Check
Must be filled out to volunteer in the classrooms, cafeteria, or on a field trip. Must always be in the presence of a teacher or other school staff. Free. Form can be filled out online by clicking HERE or there are hard-copies in our front door vestibule.
Full Background Check
Filled out if you will be working alone with students (in resource areas, etc). Costs $20 and is submitted to our Human Resource department downtown (we can send it for you). Please see the form for more information. Forms are available in the information tower located in our front door vestibule or by clicking HERE.
On the day of volunteering, sign in at the office in the green book and pick up an orange visitor sticker. The sticker must be worn and visible while you are in the building. This allows all staff to know that you have signed in at the office and are cleared to be on the Lester Park School property. When you complete your volunteer time, return to the office and sign-out.
Volunteers are welcome to begin their service once information has been submitted. Please know that you will only be notified if the results of your background check indicate that a record has been found.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in supporting child safety!
