Forever Moving Forward... NO Learning Limit!
Dear TZ Parents/Guardians,
This is just a courtesy message to inform you that we completed several safety drills on Thursday, August 9th at school. Each year we are required to practice fire, tornado, man-made occurrence drills (i.e., lock down), and earthquake drills. The goal of the drills is not to alarm the students, but to practice procedures and to be ready if we were to have an actual emergency. We had a fire drill, a tornado drill, and a lock down drill today. Each time there was warning in advance that we were practicing the drill and follow up discussion after the drill. We will have a fire drill each month, along with one more tornado drill and one additional man-made occurrence drill. The school will take part in the Great Central US Shakeout (Earthquake Drill) in October.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding these safety drills.
1st Day of School...We're Off to a GREAT Start!
Volunteer in the Classroom, Eat Lunch, or Field Trip--Need Background Check On File--Good for One Year
At TZ we appreciate parents/guardians that would like to volunteer to assist in the classrooms and/or go on field trips. As a part of any volunteer activity, we must have a cleared background check on file for each person wanting to assist here at school or accompany a class on a field trip. New this year, we will require anyone going beyond the office that will have any interaction with students to have a cleared background check on file. Also new this year for all GCSC schools, a background check expires at the end of the school year, and a new background check will need to be completed at the start of the new school year.
I wanted to take time to clarify the limited/volunteer background checks. These background checks are free to our volunteers. A limited/volunteer background check is only good for one calendar year. If a volunteer wishes to continue volunteering after one year, they must submit a new application.
A link to the form that needs to be completed and turned in to the TZ office is below. You may also come by the school to complete the form. We do need to have a copy of your driver’s license to process the request.
Again, we appreciate your willingness to volunteer.
