Volunteer Background Checks

Sherwood School District welcomes volunteers in our schools and classrooms. The time our parents and community members devote to our schools is what helps make our district a great place for ALL kids. As a reminder, every volunteer in Sherwood School District must have a criminal background check completed on a yearly basis. It can take 7-10 business days to complete the process, so if you would like to volunteer for a field trip or other event, please plan ahead. Please see here for more information about volunteering or to access the background check forms.

All Sherwood and Tigard-Tualatin families are invited to this free event - pizza and childcare provided! Join us Tuesday, November 12, 2019 from 6-8pm at Laurel Ridge Middle School. Please see the registration form for event details. Registration form (English & Spanish)

Sherwood High School - Free PlaySmart Heart Screening

SHS is partnering with Providence Heart and Vascular Institute to offer a free PlaySmart Heart Screening on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The screening will measure your child’s height, weight and blood pressure and will include an EKG/ECG (which records the heart’s electrical activity) that will be reviewed by a Providence Cardiologist. The screening is painless and non-invasive. Results will be sent from Providence directly to you by email or U.S. mail.

Your child may be screened during PE class or they may come during a non-core class.

· There are two forms (see below) to be completed in order for your child to receive this free screening. You can download and print them or you can get the forms from the SHS main office or through your child’s PE teacher. Please return the completed forms to the SHS main office or your child’s PE teacher by November 1st. Children age 12-18 are eligible for this Providence program.

· We will be offering another PlaySmart screening on April 7, 2020.

· For more information call Health Services at 503-825-5485.
