PARENT VOLUNTEER POLICY - INCLUDES FIELD TRIPS AND END OF YEAR ACTIVITIES
As we approach the second half of our school year, please be aware that if you are planning to volunteer for any school day event, which include FIELD TRIPS, RACE FOR ED, and FUN DAY, you must complete and submit the following clearances to the Tuscarora School District Human Resources department:
Volunteer Registration Form
Child Abuse History Clearance
PA Criminal Record Check
Act 24 – Arrest/Conviction Form
Federal Criminal History Record Check
Tuberculin Test Results Form
Mandated Reporter Training (instructions provided in Volunteer Letter)
Volunteer packets with clearance applications, forms and directions, are available in the school office and on the school district’s website at www.tus.k12.pa.us (select Montgomery > Parents tab). Some applications may take several weeks to process, so plan accordingly to obtain volunteer approval before end of year activities take place.
If it has been longer than five years since completing one or more of your clearances, they may have expired and must be renewed before you can continue to volunteer.

Parent & Student Handbook and Acceptable Use Policy
The Parent & Student Handbook and the Acceptable Use Policy (for computer and internet use) is posted on the Tuscarora School District / Montgomery Elementary School website. We are asking each family to review both documents online so you are familiar with the expectations we hold for parents, faculty, staff, and students. If you wish to receive a hard copy of either document, please send a note to school with your child or contact the school office at 328-2023 ext. 2400.
To access the Parent & Student Handbook and Acceptable Use Policy:
TSD website - www.tus.k12.pa.us; Select “Montgomery Elementary School” under the "Schools" tab. Both documents are available under the “Students” tab.
Signatures will be required at the beginning of the school year, that you have reviewed and understand the rules and policies within each document.
Starting 2019-20 school year, reminder slips for absences will no longer be sent home. You will receive a call/text from the district's notification system, either on the day or week of your child's absence as a reminder to send a written excuse. Sending an excuse to the office by email is also an option at the following address - email@example.com.
More than three unlawful absences could lead to notification of the local magisterial district judge, as well as a referral to the County Children and Youth Agency. If you have any questions in regards to attendance or excuses received, please contact the school secretary at 328-2023 ext. 2400.
