What is PAWS:
It’s a group of parents and adults under guidance from the district and school administrative staff, that volunteer for 2 hour shifts weekly to walk around Antelope High School assisting students and staff as needed. PAWS are given school I.D.’s, lanyards and portable radios for use as they walk around the campus.
PAWS Mission Statement:
PAWS seeks to facilitate and assist in promoting a safe and friendly environment for all members of the Antelope High School community.
What kind of assistance do you give?
That varies from helping students with class locations, directions, calling for medical assistance, monitoring the campus and parking lots for students that may not belong there, during lunches monitoring the hot food lines, identify graffiti, and being an extra set of eyes for the staff when they are in the office and not able to be out and about.
How do I volunteer for a shift that works for me?
There are 4 shifts per day of 2 hours to select from. We would like to cover the lunch periods first if possible, but, any 2 hr. shift that is convenient for you is appreciated.
The shifts are: 7:30-9:30, 9:15-11:15, 11:00-1:00 and 12:45-2:45. Just let the coordinator know what shift you prefer and he will put you on the schedule.
What’s the first step to getting started?
All volunteers must have a current TB Tine test on file. This shot is free and given by the school nurse on Tues. or Wed. and must be checked within 48 hours after being given. After you receive satisfactory results, the PAWS Coordinator will meet with you and get you started with the paperwork, training and scheduling.To volunteer or learn more about P.A.W.S. contact Coordinator Steven Soto at (916)206-2408 or Jennifer Leighton(Asst.Principal) email@example.com.
