What should I do in case of emergency?

You should read and become familiar with our safety drill procedures.  Charts are posted in every classroom showing evacuation routes in case of fire, earthquake or other disaster.  We are well prepared and you will feel more comfortable with a general idea of our procedures.  Each teacher has a buddy teacher that will be helping in case that teacher is injured.

 

Please feel free to ask your supervising teacher, other staff members, the office staff and the principal when other questions and concerns arise.

 

La Entrada Volunteer Guidelines

 

The La Entrada School Volunteer Program is at all times guided by the principles and policies of the California State Board of Education and the Principal of the school.

 

School personnel are mandated by State Law to keep all information about students absolutely confidential.  As a volunteer, you work under this mandate.

 

                  If you have concerns about a child, report your concern to the

                  teacher and/or principal; do not contact the student’s family.

 

                  Never discuss a child and/or his/her problems outside of the school.

 

If a parent calls to ask you about the classroom/school program or share a problem he/she feel the child is experiencing, do not comment; advise the parent to call the teacher and/or the principal to discuss their concerns.

 

Any volunteer who fails to adhere to these guidelines of confidentiality will, unfortunately, have to leave their position.

 

For insurance reasons we are not allowed to have younger siblings attend in-class activities.  In order for you to be able to stay for a classroom party or activity you must make sure your younger child is by your side the entire time.  He/she is your full responsibility.  Younger siblings are not permitted to accompany you on field trips.

 

Please help us continue to make La Entrada a campus where parents and professionals continue to work in an open collaborative environment for the betterment of our children.
