It is imperative that parent helpers show up promptly for their assigned helping times. We realize that sometimes two or three helpers do not always seem needed for each class; however, we schedule parents based on how many helpers the teachers request. Parents should consider this a GREAT opportunity to observe their child in class. Plus, if there is a classroom emergency, it allows one parent to deal with the situation while the other parent(s) can continue in the class. Therefore, we expect parents to fulfill their helper responsibilities or forfeit their enrollment to another family on the waiting list.
If you know you'll be gone a certain day (i.e. vacation, etc.), please indicate that on your registration form, and we'll make every effort to not assign you during that time.
We make every attempt to put your helper slots in one of your child's classrooms. Unfortunately, we're not always able to do this and you may be helping with different age groups than your child. We appreciate your understanding regarding this.
If you cannot serve on the dates you've been assigned, it is your responsibility to find a replacement and switch with another parent on the schedule. If you do switch, please mark the changes on the master helper schedule on the registration table. It is critical to the success of the co-op that you show up when you're scheduled.
