I think our guidelines must have been decided upon by the whole BOD at some point. They have been around longer than I have. They are as follows:
Retirement/Leaving
Teacher/Staff 2-10 Yr.of Svc. $25.00
Teacher/Staff 10 or More Yr. $50.00

Welcome
Teacher/Staff receives a plant/flowers
with a welcome note $8.00

Hospitalization/Serious Illness/Accident
Teacher/Staff/PTO BOD
Floral Arr. or Gift Cert.w/card $20.00

Death of Spouse/Parent/Child/Sibling
Teacher/Staff/PTO BOD
Cash donation/memorial and card $25.00

Death of Teacher/Staff/PTO BOD
Cash donation/memorial and card $50.00

Death of Student
To be determined by PTO BOD

(For example-we created an annual $200 scholarship in a students name)

Our school size is about 350 students, not to big. Just to give you an idea of how much staff we have. Hope this helps you. If you have any more questions, I would be happy to answer them!!

Thanks to all who have answered! Your replies have been helpful. I have another question for juliedio: You mentioned "specific guidelines." Are these guidelines you have come up with as a group? In what cases do you send a basket? I was wondering since it could get costly.
Thanks again!

We have a Goodwill Chairpeson who follows specific guidelines for deaths/hospitalizations/severe illnesses etc. Genereally a card is sent, with a basket or monetary donation ($20-$25) in a designated amount. For a fire or something out of the ordinary, we would all decide as a group on the appropriate gesture. Probably a donation from the PTO and a seperate collection from individual families who would like to show additional support.
Hope this helps you!

Our corresponding secretary sends cards and arranges for the librarian to purchase a book in honor/memory of a persom. This year we stared a "Friends in Need" committee to offer more, say providing meals, babysitting or whatever a family would need in the event of a loss. We have limited it to include students, staff and caregivers of students that have a need.
