Volunteer Policy 

We believe that parent/guardian involvement is a crucial part of a child’s education. All parents/guardians of children registered at Pinecrest Academy of Nevada are encouraged to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours per family each academic year. This can be either in the classroom or outside of the classroom. Pinecrest Academy welcomes and encourages the opportunity for parents to participate in classroom activities. Parents volunteering more than 30 hours in the classroom may be requested to authorize a background check. 

Pinecrest Academy requests that at least 15 hours (or 1/2 of the volunteer hour family commitment) be completed by January 30th of the current school year and all volunteer hours be completed by May 15th of the current school year. 

Volunteer hours can be achieved through many different means. They can be achieved by academically helping students at the school, getting involved with school activities and events or through monetary donations*. Any parent/guardian who would like to volunteer in the classroom must inform the classroom teacher prior to volunteering. Parents/visitors must sign-in at the main office and obtain a visitor’s pass. In order to ensure the safety of all of our students, NO PARENTS/VISITORS WILL BE ALLOWED BEYOND THE MAIN OFFICE WITHOUT A VISITOR’S PASS. 

It is the responsibility of the parent to communicate with the front office to complete the hours. Reminders regarding volunteer hours will be sent periodically, not to remove the responsibility of the parent in meeting the requirements but as a reminder. 

*Monetary Donations: A maximum of 15 hours can be achieved by monetary donations. Every 20 dollars donated will equate to 1 volunteer hour. Donations by checks made out to Pinecrest Academy of Nevada will be accepted only at the front office. 

Thank you for your time and commitment to a child’s education.
