Parent Volunteers

If you would be interested in volunteering at the school this year or going on a field trip with your child's class, we would love to have you. The following is the criteria:


  • Parents who work directly with students or go on a class field trip must have a background check. Parents are responsible for the $12.00 fee.
  • Parents must also fill out a confidentiality form.
  • All forms are located in the front office.
  • Parents who are making copies, helping with bulletin boards, etc. and are NOT working with children, do not need a background check.
  • Let us know ASAP, if you're interested in volunteering or going on a field trip, as it takes a little bit of time to get through the process.
