A reminder for Tobias student and parent safety
During pick-up and drop-off times, we need parents to stay behind the yellow line in the bus area. Buses are having a hard time making the turn because parents are encroaching over the line which makes the bus drivers unable to safely maneuver.
Background checks- Background checks are required to volunteer (including classroom help, PTO and field trips) and expire every two years. Prior to volunteering, we ask that you complete the volunteer application process. Link- http://www.hsd.k12.or.us/Community/Volunteering/VolunteerDonate.aspx
