As a parent at Sierra View Elementary, you are an important team member in your child's education. Our parents support in and out of the classroom, fulfilling the expectations set forth by Sierra View's Academics Plus program. Every day, you will see parents on campus who are volunteering in the classrooms, helping out on our playgrounds, and helping us make Sierra View a wonderful place to learn.
 

We are fortunate to have support and many volunteers at Sierra View. Parents are a big key to our success. We appreciate everything you do to help us be the best school we can be.

Your role as a volunteer is critically important to our mission and we ask our volunteers to work with the same level of professionalism as our staff members. Please understand that as a volunteer, you may be privy to confidential information about students and we ask that you maintain the confidentiality of our students. This would include such things as refraining from discussing with other children, parents and families; student concerns or behaviors, interactions with others, physical and/or academic abilities, achievement on tests or classwork.

If you ever have questions about your role as a volunteer on our campus, please talk with your child's teacher or with the principal. We work as a team at Sierra View and teamwork means we communicate a lot to make sure we are always acting in our students' best interests.
 

Volunteer and Visitor Sign-In & Sign-Out:

Between 8:15 a.m. and 2:20 p.m., all school volunteers and visitors sign in at the office when they arrive and wear a visitor badge while on campus. Visitors and volunteers should sign out and dispose of their visitor badge when leaving. Parents and caregivers who are dropping off and picking up students do not need to follow this procedure during 10 minutes before and after drop off & pick-up.

Proper Insurance for Field Trips:

All field trip drivers must have a transportation form on file in the school office. The minimum auto insurance requirements are $100K/$300K public liability/bodily injury per occurrence, and $5K medical per person. All children must be secured in seatbelts on field trips, and children under 13 must not be seated in front seats of vehicles with passenger-side air bags. Please complete our volunteer paperwork to join our list of eligible drivers for field trips.

The Family-School Partnership Act:

Effective January, 1995, this law allows parents to take time off from work to participate in their children’s school activities. The law covers employees in companies with 25 or more people at the same location. With reasonable notice, employees can take up to 40 hours, no more than 8 hours per month, to volunteer in classrooms each school year. Contact your employer to see if you qualify.
