Visitor Sign In Procedures in Front Office
Because student safety is the responsibility of the school, you must report to the school front office to obtain a visitor badge before any conferences, activities, Bobcat Assemblies, or other school functions during the school day. Please bring your driver license or government issued identification with you each time. You will be issued a Visitor Badge Pass badge.
Volunteer Sign In Procedure in Front Office
Please bring your driver license or government issued identification with you each time. You will be issued a Volunteer Badge Pass badge. Wearing your Volunteer Badge Pass badge while at the school and during your volunteer activities will ensure that school staff and students can easily identify you.
Current Level 2 volunteers will not need a Badge Pass badge, you will wear your Level 2 badge, but you will still need to be signed into the Badge Pass system by our front office staff to signify you are on campus.
We hope YOU become a Volunteer!
All volunteers MUST be registered!
Two ways to become a Pinellas County School Registered Volunteer:
A Level 1 (National Background Screening at no cost to the volunteer) will be processed by the District Office Of Strategic Partnerships. Please confirm with the Family & Community Liaison at the school if additional Level 2 screening is a requirement for volunteering. When the registration has been Level 1 background checked approved, you will receive an email with your user ID and password to log your volunteer hours in the volunteer system.
Why It’s Important to Log Your Volunteer Hours https://focus.pcsb.org/volunteer/
Remember to log in your volunteer hours at the ‘Volunteer Station’ located in the front office. If you need assistance with your user name and password, ask the Family & Community Liaison, Christine Beatty. The Volunteer System keeps a record of your hours of service, which the school will receive recognition for based on the number of volunteer hours accumulated over the school year. Please remember to use a computer and Chrome as your browser.
