HERO Parent Volunteer Positions Have Changed!
Sign up at Open House
There have been updates and changes made to the Parent Volunteer Stations: We have assessed our security needs and we have made some major changes to the volunteer positions. There will no longer be a hall monitor on the upper and lower levels of the church building. In place of the hall monitors we will have a roaming (walking) monitor who walks from floor to floor during their entire shift.
All shifts have been changed from 2 hours to 1.5 hour shifts. There are 1 hour shifts available for set up at the beginning of the day and clean up at the end of the day.
We have added another parking lot patrol position at the main church building. This person will be stationed under the car port by the entry doors to the church Sanctuary.
All volunteers will check in with Jayne Wahlberg before they start their shift. She will give them an instruction guide for their shift. Volunteers will also need to sign out with Jayne Wahlberg after they have completed their volunteer shift. Jayne Wahlberg will be mostly in the church building. Persons who are volunteering for shifts in the Activity Center will check in and out with Sam Tischler, who will be located in the kitchen of the Activity Center.
You can down load a copy of the new volunteer sheet by going to INFORMATION on the HERO homepage. You will find a link to the PDF volunteer form or HERE.
