Procedures to Volunteer at Your Child's School
We value your help and support in our schools. In today’s climate we’re sure you understand the need to ensure the safety of our students. Before volunteering we ask that you complete the following steps:

1. Come into the school office and let them know you wish to become a school volunteer. The office will notify the secretary at the Board Office that you will be coming over to get the paperwork needed.

2. At this time you can go to the Board Office to pick up an official records check form. (You need to use this form, no other form will be accepted.)

3. Then make an appointment for your background check, both a FBI/BCI.

4 . Once the background check is received, the building Administrator will send a recommendation to Mr. Cook to have the volunteer names placed on the Board Agenda to be approved.

5. Once you are Board approved, you will be able to begin to volunteer. Thank you for being a very important part of our schools. The students and staff appreciate all that our volunteers do for us.

Please know the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake City School District pays for all of our volunteer background checks.

If we have a two hour delay, Kindergarten AM classes and Preschool AM classes only will be cancelled.  NO BREAKFAST ON TWO HOUR DELAY DAYS. 
Preschool Supplies
All you need to buy for preschool is a book bag that can hold regular size folders. You will pay a fee of $20.00 and that will cover school supplies. Each child will need to bring their own snack daily. 
 
 
Parent Visitation at Knollwood and Forestlawn
There is a new procedure for parents visiting during the school day that will be implemented at Knollwood and Forestlawn this year. When a parent wants to visit their child's classroom during the day, the parent will have to either  call or email the teacher to set up an appointment. Frequent distractions interrupt the educational process of learning for all of the students and is often hard to get all the students back on the learning track. Thank you for helping us keep the learning environment a productive one. 
ID TAGS
Welcome Back! I am looking forward to an outstanding year. Please keep in mind as the school year begins, there will be procedures to the entry and dismissal at Knollwood. Breakfast begins at 8:15. The entry bell for all other students is at 8:20. If your child is a car rider, please drop your child off at the back doors to enter into school.
