student safety is the responsibility of the school, always
report to the school office before you begin your volunteer activity.
Begin by signing in with the front office with your drivers license and
obtaining a Badge Pass
visitors badge. Current Level 2 volunteers will not need a Badge Pass
badge, you will wear your Level 2 badge. Wearing your name badge while
at the school and during
your volunteer activity will ensure that school staff and students can
easily identify you. Please take a moment to log in your volunteer hours
by signing-in with your Volunteer password and ID into Focus/SIS
web address: https://focus.pcsb.org from home or on our Community
Access Computer outside the front office. The Focus Volunteer System keeps a
record of your hours of service, which the school will receive
recognition for based on the number of volunteer hours accumulated over
the school year. Please don’t forget to sign out!
volunteers are required to be registered and MUST have an approved
status to attend all field trips. It takes about two weeks to complete
this process, so please make sure you have registered with us in advance
of any field trip or volunteer opportunity you are considering.
