Safe & Secure

Our Shared Goal: To create and maintain a safe and secure environment for all of our students.  

Volunteering
All volunteers should first report to the school lobby to sign in with LobbyGuard and receive a badge. Badges should be returned to the receptionist when leaving the building.  The Lobbyguard system conducts an immediate background check for persons 18 years and older using a driver's license or other state-issued identification.  Please have your photo identification ready as you check in each time that you check in to Grove Christian School.   

Safe and Secure
We love volunteers. Volunteers are used in the classrooms and outside of the classroom to help with different events. Examples include  room mothers/fathers who assist in coordinating class parties, projects, etc., throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to be volunteers in a variety of ways on a regular basis but there will be special events promoted by the school, the PTP, or Student Leadership that calls for volunteers.  

All parents volunteering at the school should complete the Safe & Secure Procedure as soon as possible during the beginning of the school year. Parents will not be allowed to help in the class unattended or drive/attend field trips unless and until they have completed the Safe & Secure Procedure.  (This excludes end of year/Christmas parties or having lunch with your child.) This class is offered online with links to appropriate videos and assesment will be disseminated upon request. Upon request, on-site session can be held by emailing the Facilities Manager at Grove Christian School. A background check is a required part of completing this class and the form is provided below.  Please complete the steps below in order and join our volunteer corps to make an impact at Grove Christian School.

Once we submit the paperwork with the State Police, it generally takes them 2-3 weeks to finalize.
