Guidelines for School Volunteers and Visitors

With the start of a new school year upon us, we want to remind parents and other volunteers of the guidelines for visitors that are in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We value the positive impact of community volunteers and are grateful when parents and visitors are interested in supporting our schools. However, we have specific protocols which all prospective volunteers must follow.

All volunteers must submit an application to the school and receive clearance from the district before interacting with children in the school or chaperoning any school field trip.  Volunteers are now identified by two different categories:  Level I or Level II.
