Parent volunteers are an invaluable and essential part of the success and efficient operation of our school, and we are so grateful for each one of our volunteers. We are being required by our insurance company to obtain background checks on our volunteers. Please know that any policy implemented is done so with the best interests of our students at the forefront.
The required background check would apply to the following:
1. Field trip drivers/chaperones
2. Drivers for sport events
3. Lunch servers
4. AR store volunteers
5. Room parents
Parents who come to have lunch with their child or attend a class party or other all-school event would not be required to complete a background check.
The school will cover the cost of the background check, and we sincerely appreciate your cooperation and understanding of the need for this policy revision. You may go to https://bib.com/SECUREVOLUNTEER/PRESTON-HOLLOW-PRESBYTERIAN-SCHOOL/ to complete the form.
Once you click on the link, you will have to choose a Background Screen Type. Field Trip Driver will have additional checks on your driving record. If you will not be driving students, then you will select Standard Volunteer (lunch servers, AR store, room parents, etc). The other option is outside specialists, but that is for our therapists that access our building. Feel free to contact Julie Bonahoom with our business office at email@example.com if you have any questions.
