How to Get Involved
We welcome all family members to bring whatever time and talent you can to the school. Compass Rose encourages parents and family members to regularly visit the school and become involved in student activities.
Visitors MUST sign in at the Front Office whenever they are on campus. They will be provided with a visitor ID that must be worn while on campus. Visitors are not permitted to make unscheduled or drop-in visits to classrooms.
When visiting campus to meet with teaching staff, visitors must have a pre-arranged time set up with the teacher(s) in question except for urgent matters. Times are best arranged via email. An email directory is located on our website. With few exceptions, conferences are scheduled during teacher/team planning time, and/or immediately before or after school. Under no circumstances can a teacher be interrupted while providing instruction before, during, or after the school day to meet with a parent.
Visitors to campus must be the parent, guardians, or other adult family members with permission of the parent/guardian. Students’ friends, younger siblings, and other individuals cannot visit the campus during school hours.
Volunteers MUST go through a background check conducted by our district office. Once the check is cleared, volunteers are notified and may begin helping on campus. Until this clearance is obtained, they are not to be involved in any educational or extra-curricular activities.
