📝📋📗📕** REMINDER!! **📕📗📋📝 Please get your SafeSchools done ASAP!!
It is REALLY IMPORTANT to just do it now, since you will NOT be able to help out in any event if you didn't follow the courses. There is no second chance taking Safe Schooltrainings right before an event.
If you do not have your SafeSchools Training, you can't volunteer for the whole schoolyear! Can't be a classparent, can't help out with the big fun events (and your kids would love to see you help! Handing out lettuce, popcorn, selling books, beat them on tug-of-war....lots of different ways to help).
If you need any help, please don't hesitate to contact us! In a private message on Instagram (@midlandschoolpta) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/MidlandSchoolPTA) or by emailing us at; firstname.lastname@example.org
Please send us a quick note if you completed the course so we can ad you to our volunteerlist 🙂.

Paramus Public Schools uses the SafeSchools online safety training program to train both professional and support staff on school- related safety issues. SafeSchools offers training in all facets of school safety issues, and its compliance management system tracks all the training for the district, allowing us to easily demonstrate state and federal compliance with safety mandates. SafeSchools courses have been authored by experts, and have been endorsed by a number of school boards and superintendent associations nationwide.
