Schools implement new volunteer policy

A new volunteer policy is in effect for the Cape Schools to insure the safety of students. All volunteers at Pond Cove School and the Middle School must return a completed registration form and attend a one-time volunteer awareness session before volunteering in the schools or chaperoning school field trips.

The registration form includes a confidentiality statement which must be signed and questions regarding background information which will be held in confidence. The awareness session focuses on the general guidelines for volunteering in the school, such as: confidentiality, security, building evacuation, universal precautions, diversity, minor discipline infractions. A volunteer only needs to attend one awareness session but needs to return a new registration form each year.

Volunteer awareness sessions will be in the Pond Cove/Middle School cafetorium:

Tuesday September 19 6:30-7:15 p.m.

Friday September 22 8:45-9:30 a.m.

Monday September 25 6:30-7:15 p.m.

Wednesday September 27 1:30-2:15 p.m.

If you have questions, please call Gail Schmader 799-7339.
