Important notice for school volunteers
Due to revisions to the state and federal laws regarding criminal record checks, the school is now required to run a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) request for all persons who plan to volunteer in the schools in any capacity. Since the checks can take up to ten weeks to complete, those who wish to volunteer at the beginning of the year should be sure to submit a CORI permission form as soon as possible. CORI forms have been mailed to all families in a recent joint CPS/CSA mailing. CORI permission forms may also be obtained from the main office at the school. Note that the CORI requirements include field trip chaperones, playground and lunch volunteers, classroom and library volunteers, and those chaperoning at other school-sponsored events.
