Parent Duty Q&A



在博根中文學校註冊的家長被要求每學年義務幫忙兩次(一學期一次)。幫忙的範圍包括監管校內某一指定區域, 以保證安全和舒適的學習環境, 幫助PTA經營零食攤以及一些校內的瑣事。


在八月一日之前登記註冊的家庭會在八月底寄出的入學通知書上得知您的值勤日。 其他家庭會在登記倆星期後得到通知。 校務會在您值勤日的前一星期通過Email再次提醒。


在您在指定的值勤日,在進入校門後的TA 桌子上有值勤表,請在上面簽到。校務或TA會具體告知值勤內容。


眾 人拾材火焰高。家長服務費的宗旨意在讓所有BCS家庭一起分享工作。 作為一個非營利機構我們需要大家一起幫忙來順利運行。每個家庭在首次登記註冊的時候付$50 。如果在這一學年中如期值勤,下學年就無需再交。如果您無法完成家長值勤要求,那麼下學年登記時需要從新交付。漏掉一次$25 , 兩次$50.


如果無法在指定日期值勤, 請至少在一星期之前通知校務。校務會和你商量選出一個新日期。



What is Parent Duty?
Parents of students enrolled at Bergen Chinese School are asked to volunteer their time during school hours at least twice per academic year (once per semester). Requested services may include monitoring a designated area of the school building to ensure a safe and comfortable learning environment; assisting the PTA at the snack bar; or other general tasks relating to the daily operations of our school.

When will I know my Parent Duty date?
Families who register their children at BCS by August 1st will receive their Parent Duty assignments with their child(ren)’s enrollment confirmation form, which is generally mailed in August. Others will be given Parent Duty assignments within 2 weeks after registering at BCS. Reminder emails will be sent to parents one week prior to the assigned Parent Duty date by the Student Dean.

How do I fulfill my Parent Duty?
On your assigned date, please sign the parent duty list posted at the TA’s table directly inside of the side entrance doors. The Student Dean or one of the TAs will provide you with instructions about your duties.

Why do I have to pay a Parent Duty Deposit and how does it work?
Many hands make light work. The purpose of the Parent Duty Deposit is to maintain and provide incentive for an even distribution of shared work across all BCS families. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on the volunteerism of our families in helping BCS run smoothly and safely. Each family pays a $50 deposit when they first register at Bergen Chinese School. The deposit will automatically be applied to the next academic year if a family has fulfilled its Parent Duty requirement in the previous year. In the event that your family did not fulfill the Parent Duty requirement, you must replenish your Deposit at the next registration period, by paying $25 for one missed Parent Duty day or $50 for 2 missed Parent Duty days.

What if I have a schedule conflict with my assigned Parent Duty day(s)?
Please notify the Student Dean of any conflicts at least one week prior to your assigned Parent Duty day. The Student Dean will work with you to find a new mutually agreeable day on which to reschedule your Parent Duty assignment.
