School Volunteer Policy
If you would like to be a volunteer at UDS, you must undergo a background check. Background checks currently cost $29 and are done at the expense of the volunteer. Please call Employment Screening, Inc. at (704) 504-0928 and tell them that you would like to be an APPROVED VOLUNTEER for Union Day School. Please note that your volunteer status is good for the current school year. Once you receive your background check back, please provide a copy to business office at email@example.com. The business office will notify you of your volunteer status. If you have any questions, please contact the school’s main office at 704-256-1494.
Volunteers must enter the building through the front doors and check in with the front office.
Volunteers should then go directly to the classroom or area in which they are helping during their designated volunteer time.
Volunteers are not permitted to visit their children in classrooms unless they are volunteering in that classroom or have cleared the visit with the classroom teacher.
Volunteers may not remove their children from a classroom for any reason without going through our front office and following student dismissal procedures.
Volunteers must agree to not disturb any classroom instruction during their time in the building and leave immediately after their time is completed.
Field Trip Chaperone Policy
All field trip chaperones need to be approved volunteers AND be approved to attend the field trip by the classroom teacher. Parents are not permitted to “show up” to a field trip without BOTH of these approvals. This is for the safety of our students.
All visitors are required to present their driver’s license at the front desk for any school visits. Please report to the front desk immediately upon entering the campus. Sign in at the front desk upon entering the school, provide your anticipated time of departure, and sign out when departing. Any visitors who intend to leave the front lobby will need a security badge provided by reception. The same policy holds true for the Kindergarten building. Thank you for helping keep our Gryphons safe! Unauthorized persons will be reported to the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
We will be using the Visitor Aware system. We will use the system for all visitors coming into the school, require checkout with the system, signing in and out your child as well as check ins for grade events and volunteers.
Visitor Aware is a newly developed visitor system and we will be the first school in North Carolina to implement this technology. The system was developed specifically for schools. We have entered into a partnership with the developer to collaborate and further develop the system to handle all aspects of visitors in schools and we hope to be able to share our knowledge with other schools in North Carolina and across the country.
All parents or guardians are required to submit their Student Critical Information forms within the first week of school. Please click here to access the Critical Information Form, as well as other medical documents and information. To learn more about the current UDS COVID-19 Policy, please click on the link.
