What do I do when I arrive?
Head straight to the front office where you will sign in as a volunteer and receive a name-tag. Once you’ve signed in, head to the cafeteria where you will find an apron and gloves to help protect your clothing and hands. These are typically located on a cart against the far wall directly opposite the entry door.
How will I know if a child needs help?
The kiddos know to raise their hands if they need assistance.
What if a child asks to use the restroom?
Ask the child if he/she can wait until after lunch, and if not, please escort them to the restroom after letting the other Lunch Buddy Volunteer(s) know that you are doing so.
What do I do at the end of my shift?
Please turn in your apron at the cart and check-out at the front office.
What do I do if I need to change or cancel my shift?
If you need to cancel, please reach out to the other parents in your child’s class to try and find a replacement. If you need to change your shift, please do so using the same sign-up sheet you used initially.
Do I need to bring anything to my shift?
No, the cafeteria is equipped with aprons, gloves, and scissors for your use.
Can I volunteer at other times throughout the school year?
Yes, simply email LFBYRD@MAC.COM with your name and email address, and you can be added to the list of back-up volunteers when slots are not full for any given week.
…AND THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING!!!
