Hello Parkside Families!
Thank you for such a wonderful start to the 2022-2023 school year! Our students and staff are fully engaged in learning experiences and meeting challenges every day! We are almost halfway through the 1st quarter already so if you have any questions about how your child is progressing, please contact the classroom teacher. Quarter 1 progress reports will be sent home in late October but you are free to set up a parent/teacher conference to discuss your child's progress at any time.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please use the information provided below in the newsletter to begin that process. Volunteering takes many different forms. There are opportunities to help in the classroom, at school events, from home, chaperoning field trips, and much more! We look forward to seeing volunteers around campus soon!
Please take time to look through this month's newsletter! There are helpful links below, including our Student & Parent Handbook, which provides answer to many parent questions! As always, please reach out to us if you have any questions or feedback.

Become a Volunteer!
All prospective volunteers are required to complete an online volunteer application, present a valid US-issued photo ID, and review volunteer orientation materials to become eligible to volunteer. The prospective volunteer cannot participate in any volunteer activities until these steps have been completed and the application has been approved by the school.
Steps to become a school-based volunteer (New & Returning):
1. Apply to volunteer by clicking "Apply to Volunteer".
2. Contact the school's volunteer coordinators, Mrs. Valencia or Ms. Wind, to complete the following:
* Present valid US-issued photo identification at the school
* Have badge picture taken at the school
* Complete volunteer orientation
3. Once the items in step two have been completed the school's volunteer contact will print your volunteer badge. Please note there is a 2-3 day delay before the badge will be printed and available for pickup. The school can issue you a temporary visitor pass until the badge is printed, if necessary.

Instructional Materials Review
FortifyFL is a suspicious activity reporting tool that allows you to instantly relay information to appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials.
FortifyFL was created and funded by the 2018 Florida Legislature as part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. The application was named by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The Office of Attorney General, Department of Education and Florida Department of Law Enforcement coordinated its development and roll-out.
