Playground (POPS)

Parents on Patrol in the Park (POPs)

The POPS (Parents on Patrol on the Playground) program places volunteer parents and grandparents on the playground to help the teachers during PK-2nd grade recess. You must complete a background check with FWISD prior to volunteering. POPs volunteers must enter through the front office, provide their photo ID, and wear their visitor’s badge at all times while on campus. Younger siblings are not allowed on the playground. See below for links for sign-up genius for POPS and FWISD background check form.

Also, please keep in mind that the purpose of POPS is to keep our students safe on the playground. Please do not take photos or videos of students. Please do not socialize with other adults while on patrol. Please do not pick students up or assist them with climbing on the equipment. Restroom and nurse visits for students during recess will be managed by the teachers on duty. Thank you for helping us keep our Tigers safe!
