Please arrive 10 minutes before recess is to begin (arrive by 11:03 for grades 4th and 5th and by 11:25 for grades 1st, 2nd and 3rd). In order for the students to go outside we must have a certain adult / class ratio. If there are not enough volunteers students must remain inside. By arriving early the teacher will be able to assess whether they will be able to go out for recess.
At no time is a parent to discipline a child. If an
incident occurs where a student is seen to be acting in a way that is counter to the St. Patrick School Code of Conduct, the Lunch Volunteer should either complete a Recess Incident Report or if immediate attention is needed, inform a teacher on duty.
Recess Incident Report Procedure
The Recess Incident Report will be placed at the security desk. In the case of an incident at recess please stop at the security desk after recess and fill one out. The form should be left with the school security officer and she will then deliver it to the main office. At that time Mrs. Pymm or Mr. DiMenna will relay the incident report to the appropriate classroom teacher, if necessary further action will be taken at that time.
Thank you for volunteering at St. Patrick School and I look forward to working with you all.
Mrs. Barbara Pellerito
