New Volunteer Policies and Procedures
Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, all adults wishing to volunteer in the School District of Philadelphia will need to complete a Volunteer Orientation. Click HERE for more information.
Parents/Guardians are welcome to visit their children’s classroom at Dr. Ethel Allen School. However, to limit interruption of instructional time, parents/guardians who wish to schedule a visit need to contact the teacher at least 24 hours in advance to determine a mutually convenient time.
Parents/Guardians must sign in at the main office prior to entering the classroom. For safety and security reasons, visitors are only permitted in the classroom when the classroom teacher is present.
After-School Playground Use
Students are more than welcome to utilize the play ground as long as they are supervised by an adult. If they are not, they must leave school grounds at dismissal as there are no staff and aftercare here at Dr. Ethel Allen School. This is to ensure the safety of all students.
