A Reminder About Driving
Remember that your safety, the safety of your passengers and of those around you is of primary importance.
You are to obey all traffic regulations while driving. If you are running late, remember that the students have a 30-minute window of time to reach their placements. It is better that they are late than there is an accident.
Also, any tickets received will be your personal responsibility to pay. If you have any questions concerning this driving policy, please contact Learn and Serve at 716.286.8750 or 716.286.8752.
This Just In
Per Campus Safety, vans cannot be parked in handicap, faculty (blue), or administration (white) spaces. Vans must go back in their designated space when they are not in use (this includes during breaks, too).
Messages to Drivers
If there are two hours or more between runs, you must record that break on your time sheet. For example, if your first run is at 8:30 a.m. and your second run is at 11 a.m., record 8:30-9 a.m. and then 11 a.m. to whenever you are done working. Please round up times to the nearest half hour in your favor. If you work six or more hours, you must, by law, record a half hour break for lunch. For example, record 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and then noon to 3:30 p.m.
Attention All Drivers
For current and future reference, if you are scheduled to pick up at a placement and NU at the same time, please always pick up at the placement first. As a reminder, you should always be at a placement at the time scheduled. Those going from NU to a placement have a 30-minute time period to get there. If this is still unclear or you have any questions, please contact Learn and Serve at 716.286.8750.
Important Information and Notes
Time sheets: Please remember that time sheets are due every other Friday (work-study). Please round your times to the nearest half hour. Under the total hours section, make sure you put the numbers down in hours (30 minutes = 0.5 hours). If you don't, you will accidentally dock your own pay! Next time you are in the office, please sign ALL your time sheets in the binder for this semester. This will allow us to hand in the time sheet if you aren't available so that you will still get paid. You must dock a half hour if you work more than six hours.
Defensive driving courses: If you have not taken a course yet, please find a session that is convenient for you. They are posted in the Learn and Serve office. Everyone needs to have a valid defensive driving certificate.
