Steeler Trainings: Urgent Information!!!

Sunday's Soccer game - We need one more person to work this Sunday for the Soccer game due to a death in the family of one of the volunteers.  We will meet at 11:30 am at the Pleasant Hills Middle School.  Please let Jean Crane know ASAP if you can work. (412) 916-1644
Aramark Background Checks - Aramark notified us this week that it will be mandatory to provide the information in the attached documents so that Aramark can perform a background check on all volunteers if they choose to do so.  There are two forms to be filled out which include the following information:  name, addresses for past 2 years, birthdate and criminal history.  Driver's License and Social Security numbers are NOT requested.  Even if you have a current background check, these forms must still be filled out and returned to Aramark.  This information has to be sent to Aramark by August 13th.  This information is not required for the Soccer game this Sunday.
I have requested additional information from Aramark about the cost for the background checks and who will be paying for it,  how the information provided will be safeguarded/protected, how long the information will be kept and how will the information be disposed of.  I have not yet received a response to these questions.
Actions Requested:

· Please review the attached documents and email me with your response by Friday, August 1st.  Specifically, let me know if you agree to provide this information to Aramark or if you choose to no longer participate in this fundraiser.

Attend the next Band Parent Meeting on Monday, August 4th at 7:00 pm.

I will compile the responses received and present them at the Band Parent meeting.  At that time, we can determine as a group whether to continue with this fundraiser or not.

To be eligible to work Steeler games, everyone must have both their ServSafe and TEAM training certifications.  ServSafe is required every year and TEAM training is required every 3rd year.  All training classes offered include both certifications.  Training for each certification is about an hour in length for a total class time of approximately 2-2.5 hours.  If you only need the ServSafe certification, you can leave when that training is complete.
