Grassy Creek Elementary Visitor Procedures

Clark-Pleasant Community School Corporation understands how fortunate we are to be a part of an ever-expanding community. We invite the members of our community to enrich our students' learning experience and assist in enhancing the quality of our students education by volunteering. Clark-Pleasant also realizes the importance of maintaining the safety of our students and appreciates the community’s support as we strengthen our security protocols.

In a continuous effort to increase and improve school safety, we have implemented an additional layer of security to access our schools and students on campus. We have been testing a new visitor management system at two of our schools and plan to have a system in place by the beginning of the school year. All visitors and volunteers will still be required to check in at the front office; however, visitors will be required to complete a screening process upon entry. They will need to provide a government issued photo ID (drivers license, military ID, etc) that will be ran against the National Sex Offender Registry.


Examples of activities in the school that will require a visitor to present government issued photo ID are listed below (but not limited to):


● Lunch Guests

● Classroom Parties/Special Events (e.g. Grandparents Day)

● Parent/Teacher Conferences

● Classroom Guest Speakers


All visitors/volunteers will be issued a badge that is to be worn while on campus at all times. This additional layer of security will not only enhance our current entrance security, but will also assist in ensuring all visitors and volunteers have been authorized to be in our buildings.

Volunteers will be required to complete a Volunteer Application Consent Form and a Criminal History Background Check. There will be a minimal fee of $12.95 to complete this check which is valid for three years. Individuals applying to be volunteers should complete this process at least 10 days prior to the date they wish to volunteer.


Examples of activities that will require a Criminal History Background Check are listed below (but not limited to):


● Field Trip Chaperones

● Volunteer Coaches

● Tutoring/Mentoring

● Classroom Volunteers/Helpers/Room Parents

● PTO Volunteers

● Book Fair Sales/Athletic Ticket Sales


Clark-Pleasant Community School Corporation thanks you for your continued support in helping us keep our students and campuses safe.

A Note From the School Counselors

Families,


Are you looking for a great way to give back and/or teach your kiddos about philanthropy? Check out the KIC-IT (Kids In Crisis - Intervention Team) wishlist (https://www.kic-it.org/wish-list). They help kids that are in crisis in our county and need your help.

ATTENTION: Parents of students who go to after school daycare!

If your student goes to childcare after school that is not within our GCES boundary, you must register your child for a car rider number as these daycare locations pick up our students in our car rider line. Please stop by the front office to register your child.


If your student attends a daycare that is within our GCES boundary, you will need to complete an "alternate bus stop" form in order for your child to be dropped off at the correct stop. You can access that form here or contact our transportation office at 317-535-7255.
