Eagle Friday News and Notes

September 22, 2017

Dear Eagle Families,


Hello, Eagle Families. This just a quick note to inform you that all is well, and our brief evacuation at Eagle Elementary early this morning ended with the fire department clearing BAC students and staff to return inside the building. The brief evacuation that took place before student arrival was due to a strong odor detected by Eagle staff upon entering the building this morning.


Zionsville Fire Department, Zionsville Police Department and ZCS Maintenance worked together to deem the matter under control for the safe return of the building occupants before we welcomed our students for the day.


We are grateful to our Eagle and BAC staff for assuring student and staff safety. In addition to thanking ZPD and ZFD. We want to share how pleased we were with the welcoming nature of our partners at the Hussey-Mayfield Library. Our morning BAC students were able to gather at the library in a calm and comforting environment.


Please thank a fire fighter or police officer when you next see one. They have our schools' and families' safety at the forefront of their minds.


As always, should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Have a wonderful weekend!


Sincerely,


Andrew Foreman

We had a great literacy night on Tuesday! Thank you!

CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR VOLUNTEERS

We value partnerships with our families and welcome parents and guardians to serve as volunteers in our schools. Each ZCS building offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities.

Examples include:

  • Field Trip Chaperones

  • Out of Town/Overnight Chaperones

  • Tutors

  • Volunteer Coaches

  • Classroom Helpers (PTO parties/room parents)

  • Library Helpers

  • After Prom Workers

  • Field Day/Jog-A-Thon Volunteers

  • Book Fair Sales/Athletic Ticket Sales

During the school day, all volunteers are expected to sign in at the front office. Prior to the volunteer opportunity, all volunteers must sign a Non-disclosure Acknowledgement Form and have successfully completed a Full Criminal History Background Check. Necessary background check paperwork is available on the ZCS website at the Volunteers/BRAVO link and should be submitted at least 10 days prior to the intended volunteer date. Volunteers must also view the state mandated confidentiality/bullying video, provided on the Volunteer/BRAVO website. The volunteer will pay the fee* for the full background check which will expire after 5 years. The link to apply for the full background check can be accessed on the Volunteers/BRAVO link on the ZCS main webpage. For more information, contact the Volunteer/BRAVO Coordinator.

CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR VISITORS

During the school day, all visitors must enter via the front door and sign-in at the front office. Visitors need to be prepared to present a government issued photo ID which will be scanned against the National Sex Offender Registry. All visitors will be issued a visitor badge/tag to be worn inside the building at all times.

Examples Include:

  • Lunch Guests

  • Classroom Guest Speakers

  • Classroom Special Events (Grandparent Day/Famous Hoosiers/etc.)

  • Parent/Teacher Conferences

We ask that all visitors schedule an appointment to meet with teachers, counselors, administrators and all other staff members so that we may best serve everyone. Visitors other than parents/guardians must be prearranged and organized through the main office.

*ZCS thanks all volunteers for generous support of our youth and schools. Thank you, too, for supporting assurance of student and staff safety by completing and paying for a volunteer background check.
