Volunteer Reminders

As we get to the part of the year when we get to have the opportunity for field trips, we wanted to remind parents of some volunteer information to keep in mind:

— Volunteers are required to have a district volunteer badge. Click here for information about obtaining a volunteer badge:

— Field trips are grade-level specific. Therefore arrangements need to be made for siblings or others in your care if volunteering.

Please contact the district office at (614) 921-7000 for more information about volunteering.
