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.

Visitors

A VISITOR is an individual who visits the school for a public or private event involving a student who is the individual’s child, close relative or for whom the individual is guardian. Visitors do not have repeated interaction with children at school, and would not be alone with a child other than their own.  

Examples: 

  • Person, parent or guardian attending/visiting for:
    • After school event
    • Parent-teacher conference
    • IEP/504 meetings
    • PTO meeting
    • Book fair with their child
  • Community/business members visiting for:
    • A singular event under the supervision of school staff 

After completing and submitting this form, Mrs. Foley will contact you regarding completing the background check, required trainings and vaccination paperwork.
