Thank you, Labradors

THANK YOU, LABRADORS! You’ve raised over $40,000

We will announce all prize winners in our Lawrence Community FB group on or before Monday, September 26. Winners will also be notified by email, as listed in Pledgestar. We are also gathering the final votes for our whole-school assembly prize. Which will it be?!? BMX? Laser Show? Reptiles? Keep your eye on the lowdown and all the details to be posted soon!

Again, we would like to thank all of our incredible volunteers! Sincere thanks to the friends and family members who donated their time and energy throughout this process. Whether you helped with set-up, clean-up, decorating shirts, helping with Pledgestar, making copies, scanning codes, and everything in between – we couldn’t have done this without you!

Volunteer Information Update

Volunteers will now need to complete the Online Raptor Volunteer Application, requiring digital documentation to be uploaded. The application only takes a few minutes to complete once you have gathered all of the digital documentation needed. Here is a quick overview from the website:

  • All volunteers working in a supervised classroom must complete the Online Raptor Volunteer Application, upload a clear TB test on file, and have a government-issued ID scanned via the Raptor system in the office prior to volunteering.

  • If you wish to drive for field trips or volunteer for LEAP, you are considered an extended clearance volunteer and Livescan fingerprinting is required. In addition to completing Livescan Fingerprinting, you will need to complete the Online Raptor Volunteer Application, upload a digital copy of a clear TB test, and have a government-issued ID scanned via the Raptor system in the office prior to volunteering.

  • Chaperones willing to transport students in a personal vehicle will need to complete the Online Raptor Volunteer Application, upload digital copies of a clear TB test, your California Driver’s License, the Private Vehicle Transportation form, and your auto insurance declaration page.(Minimum insurance requirements include: $100,00/300,000; Property Damage $50,000; Medical $5,000.)

  • UPDATED INFORMATION REGARDING FINGERPRINTING! Extended Volunteer Clearance requires LiveScan fingerprinting that allows for a DOJ/FBI background check through a one-time processing fee of approximately $75. Starting Monday, September 19, if you would like to receive a District-paid voucher to cover the cost of the LiveScan fingerprinting and background check, please visit our District Office during regular business hours, Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm at 685 East Jack London Boulevard prior to completing your fingerprinting/background check. Fingerprint results can take up to 2 weeks to clear from the DOJ/FBI.
