volunteer Procedures to Volunteer at Your Child's School

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. Before volunteering 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.

 
Parent Visitation at Knollwood and Forestlawn
There is a new procedure for parents visiting during the school day that will be implemented 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 of the students and 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. 
sports Free Sporting Event Admission for Students
When students show their school ID at any sporting event they will be admitted at no charge when accompanied by a parent. ID cards will be coming home soon. Hope to see you at the next Cardinal event.
