Per MCPS regulations, all volunteers must be trained in recognizing child abuse and neglect prior to volunteering at Barnsley or chaperoning field trips. Prior to volunteering, you must log on to https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/childabuseandneglect/, complete the training, and bring a printed copy of the confirmation you receive to the main office. If you took this training last year, you do not need to take it this year.
