All parent volunteers must be pre-registered.  Those wishing to volunteer must obtain a current TB test and complete a Volunteer Registration Form.  For those interested in volunteering 10 or more days per month, fingerprints will be required.  The District will facilitate the fingerprinting process. 

All volunteers must sign in at the front office and obtain a volunteer badge.  A volunteer recognition ceremony is held at the end of the year to thank all of our volunteers.
