The Cathay School provides a comprehensive summer volunteer orientation as well as ongoing summer training. Orientation is typically during the end of the MCPS school calendar. In addition to the orientation and summer meetings, volunteers will receive digital documents to review as well as small online training sessions.
I understand that training is a MANDATORY component of The Cathay School summer volunteer experience. *
In order to insure the highest quality programming for our campers and families and to optimize the Cathay volunteer experience, The Cathay School has established certain regulations and standards which all volunteers will be expected to observe. Should volunteers not follow these rules and regulations, there will be consequences. Depending on the severity of the situation, the volunteer in question will receive a warning, written documentation of the infraction, along with notification of the volunteer's parent. For each warning, the volunteer will have 15 minutes deducted from the timesheet. If the volunteer receives three warnings they will be asked to leave their position as a Cathay School summer volunteer. The Cathay School reserves the right to immediately relieve a volunteer of their position.
I understand that if I do not follow the rules and regulations given to me by the The Cathay School, there will be consequences for my actions. *
I understand that the The Cathay School Summer Camp is a drug-free, smoke-free, alcohol free education environment and I agree to abide by these regulations. *
