Sept 8

Chaperones/Volunteers/Coaches/Drivers and Background Checks: Please note a significant change from the HUUSD Central Office. In ongoing efforts to ensure student safety at all costs, effective this school year, ALL coaches, volunteers, drivers,and chaperones will need a background and records check in order to work/volunteer in HUUSD schools or accompany children on field trips. If you know in advance that you will be volunteering in ANY capacity during the year (
e.g. team trips, classroom volunteers, Stowe ski-ride program, Odyssey of the Mind coaching, sports team coaching, driving students on a Brainado excursion, etc.) it would make sense to get the background check done as soon as possible, as the process could take 3-6 weeks, and sometimes longer.  The steps to do so are:
  1. Contact Laura Titus at HHUSD Central Office ( or 583-7953) to make an appointment.  Laura will also be coming to CBMS on a day during the week of Sept 18th for a drop-in session to get the paperwork distributed.  Look for a confirmation on day and time in the next edition of the Cougar Comments. 
  2. For your appoint with Laura, bring two forms of ID and exact cash or a check made payable to HUUSD for $12.00.
  3. Next you will need make an appointment to be fingerprinted at the Sheriff’s office- 223-3001. You will need two forms of ID there also. Fingerprints cost $25.
If you have already gone through a background ad fingerprinting process for work or travel (maybe you work at a school, or for a police department, or are TSA approved, etc…) then get proof to that you have cleared and fulfilled these requirements to Laura, and that can take the place of submitting background and fingerprint checks.

Save the Date!  Wednesday, Sept 27th for the Fall Walk $ Roll to School Day.  Gathering at 7AM at Rusty Parker Park, and we will head off to CBMS by 7:15AM latest.
