Volunteer & Visitor Information

PBCCS extends a warm welcome to parents/guardians and others that volunteer and visit our school and classrooms.  PBCCS works hard to assure that our students and staff are safe and that learning is not disrupted.  We have systems in place to assure that individuals in the building are supporting student learning and school operations.  


VOLUNTEERS assist teachers, administrators, or other staff in classrooms or with school programming.  A volunteer may be in direct contact with students while providing service to the school. Volunteers are required to operate under the policies and procedures of the school and/or district.
