DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT CHECKING IN WITH A STAFF MEMBER even if it just a drill. You are logged into the school system and Staff/Emergency Personal will be looking for you in the building, if you do not check out. Restrooms Please use designated adult restrooms in the building. One is located near the Media Center/Gym Doors. Telephone Use Please restrict all cell phone use to outside our Main Entrance (by the Main Office.) Cell phones should not be used to phone calls in instructional areas, or in the school house. Pictures of staff/students should never be taken using a cell phone.

BES School Policies (continued) Absence Procedure We know events arise which may prevent you from volunteering during your assigned time. If this occurs, please let the teacher/coordinator you are volunteering know as soon as possible if you are able to do so. Chain of Command Should you see/experience something you are not comfortable with, please report it to an administrator or Mrs. Baicar asap. Record Keeping & Name Tags Always sign in with a Secretary in the Main Office. They will issue you a name tag that must be worn in a visible place at all times while you are in the building/on a field trip. You may need to present a photo id the first time you volunteer. First Aid Unless you are certified in first aid/CPR, please do not assist someone in need. Call for the Nurse/Nursing Asst immediately in the event of an emergency involving a staff member/volunteer/student. Siblings We cannot accommodate siblings/non student children in the school house during school hours. Use of Social Media & Cell Phones Social media can be a convenient, fun and rewarding way to share your life and opinions with family and friends. However, using social media involves certain risks and responsibilities. These guidelines apply to all forms of social media: Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents have the right to prevent photographs of their children from being taken in instructional settings. Given that volunteers have no knowledge of which parents have allowed their children to be photographed and which have not, volunteers should not take or post online any photographs or movies of students in any instructional setting during the instructional day. This includes recess, lunch, and events such as Halloween parades. Volunteers should not make or receive phone calls or text messages while they are volunteering. Sexual Harassment & Child Abuse/Neglect VideoIf you are a new volunteer at Broadneck Elementary or have not seen the video on Sexual Harassment & Child Abuse, please watch the video then download and sign the verification form to confirm that you have watched this mandatory video. You cannot be a volunteer at BES without watching this important video. Verification Form (English)Verification Form (Spanish) Please provide a signed copy of your verification form to the main office. If you have any questions please contact the volunteer coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Miscellaneous Information Tax Deductions Volunteers may deduct some expenditures not reimbursed as part of giving to a school.

Record Keeping Record keeping is essential for tracking volunteer individual hours of service, total school hours of volunteer service, location of a volunteer in case of emergency and for liability verification. Liability InsuranceThe AACPS Board of Education’s general liability policy will pay all sums which the volunteer may become legally obligated to pay as damages because of bodily injury or property arising out of his/her activities while on school property.
