volunteers Volunteers

We value your help and support in our schools. In today’s climate we’re sure you understand the need to ensure the safety of our students. If you are volunteering as a classroom helper you do not need to do the following steps. Before volunteering for fieldtrips or other events where you may be in charge of a group of students,  we ask that you complete the following steps:

1.  Come into the school office and let them know you wish to become a school volunteer.  The office will notify the secretary at the Board Office that you will be coming over to get the paperwork needed.

2.  At this time you can go to the Board Office to pick up an official records check form. (You need to use this form, no other form will be accepted.)

3.   Then make an appointment for your background check, both a FBI/BCI.

4 . Once the background check is received, the building Administrator will send a recommendation to Mr. Cook to have the volunteer names placed on the Board Agenda to be approved.

5. Once you are Board approved, you will be able to begin to volunteer.

Thank you for being a very important part of our schools. The students and staff appreciate all that our volunteers do for us.

Please know the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake City School District pays for all of our volunteer background checks.

 
parents info PARENT VISITATION AT FORESTLAWN AND KNOLLWOOD
There is a procedure for parents visiting during the school day at Knollwood and Forestlawn this year.  When a parent wants to visit their child's classroom during the day, the parent will have to either call or email the teacher to set up an appointment.  Frequent distractions interrupt the educational process of learning for all the students and it is often hard to get all the students back on the learning track.  Thank you for helping us keep the learning environment a productive one.

bus Forestlawn Arrival and Dismissal Times-2018/2019

Please keep in mind as the school year begins, there will be procedures to the entry and dismissal at Forestlawn.  The entry bell for all students is at 8:20. If your child is a car rider, please drop your child off at the main doors to enter into school.  No child is allowed to wait outside the doors without a parent or guardian BEFORE 8:20. THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE FOYER AREA OF THE SCHOOL. Students must be in their homerooms and ready to work by 8:35 or they will be counted tardy.

 End of the day dismissal is at 3:20. All bus riders will be dismissed out the back gym doors. Bus riders will leave as soon as their buses arrive. Walkers and bike riders will be dismissed out the East doors of the building. Our crossing guard will be checking tag numbers for any parent that wishes to walk with their child. She will cross students needing to cross Forestlawn Ave. and walk the other students down to Lake Breeze Rd. and cross them.  All car riders will be dismissed out the front doors. THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE FOYER AREA OF THE SCHOOL . All parents will show their numbered key ring to the staff member at the door and they will find the child with the matching number. Please help us make this process be as smooth as possible. If you have forgotten your numbered key ring, we ask that you wait until the end of dismissal to identify your child in the office with ID. Thank you for your continuous support. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please call the office at 949-4238.

Please remember that Forestlawn Ave. is a one way (Westbound) during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal times. PLEASE NOTE THAT NO CARS ARE TO ENTER THE PARKING LOT DURING ARRIVAL OR DISMISSAL TIMES.
 
delays 2 HOUR WEATHER DELAY
If a 2 hour delay is called for our school, it means that the student start time will be 10:35AM.  Buses will still be running, but 2 hours later.  For instance, if you bus usually comes at 8:00, with a 2 hour delay it will be at your bus stop at 10:00.  Dismissal time will be the same at 3:20PM. Please have a plan in place so you are prepared when a 2 hour delay is called.  Breakfast is not served when we have a 2 hour delay. 
credit card I.D. Tags

At the beginning of the school year each child will receive 3 numbered tags. To help dismissal run more smoothly, please attach the numbered key ring to your child’s book bag. The key ring is to stay on the book bag all year. Also, please attach the other two numbered tags to your car keys etc….this is our way to identify you and your child at dismissal. If your child is a walker or bus rider, please attach the key ring to their book bag as well, just in case they are a car rider throughout the year. All parents will show their numbered key ring  to the staff member at the door and they will find the child with the matching number. Safety is IMPORTANT and I want to make sure all of our students at Forestlawn are safe.
