Visitors and Volunteers
To ensure the security of our students and staff Las Brisas Elementary is a closed campus. Parents and authorized adults are allowed on campus for lunch, but are not allowed to visit classrooms without prior authorization from the teacher. Younger siblings are not permitted to join parents and students for lunch in the school cafeteria. All visitors must register in the office and present identification. All visitors must wear a visitor’s sticker while on campus. Parents are not allowed on the playground.
Our campus opens to students at 7:45 AM. Students only will enter the playground through the gate next to the cafeteria. Parents will say their goodbyes at the gate before the students enter the playground. Parents are not allowed on the playground. Staff members will be on duty to ensure all students get to their destination safely. The first bell will ring at 7:55. Students will be escorted to their classrooms from the playground at that time. If your child arrives after 8:00, they will need to go through the office to receive a late pass.
We encourage parents to take an active part in the education of their children. However, younger siblings and other school age children, not attending Las Brisas, are not permitted to visit campus during school hours.
All volunteers must complete a volunteer training prior to volunteering. Volunteer trainings are offered at Las Brisas and across the district on a variety of dates and times. Check the district or school website for training opportunities. Volunteers only need to attend the training once. Volunteers chaperoning an overnight field trip or helping coach a team must have their IVP fingerprint clearance card well in advance of the event.
Please do not bring siblings or other children to classroom activities, class parties or volunteer assignments.
All volunteers must report to the school office upon arrival and sign in, and take a visitor badge.
When volunteering, please realize that the teacher’s first responsibility is to the class as a whole. As such, teachers are unable to converse at any length with volunteers while they are also responsible for student instruction or monitoring. Additionally, student confidentiality must be respected at all times. No visitors or volunteers will be allowed on campus for any reason during standardized state testing per state mandate.
The National PTSA is the largest child advocacy organization in the United States and one of the largest volunteer organizations. Each local PTSA is linked through its membership and acceptance of the PTSA objectives and policies to the National and State PTSA.
The Las Brisas PTSA is a valuable part of our school culture. We encourage you to become a member, attend the meetings, and get actively involved. Our children need PTSA and PTSA needs you! Please watch for communications from our PTSA during the school year.
