    Family and Community Volunteers

    Volunteers who will be on campus and have in-person contact with staff members or students must attach their current proof of COVID-19 vaccination status. Unvaccinated volunteers will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test each week prior to working with students, as determined by the district requirements set by Cal/OSHA. Volunteers must also comply with the directions of the School Administration concerning wearing appropriate face-coverings (masks) and maintaining social distance, following district requirements.

    Here are some steps to guide you through the volunteer process: 

    1. Complete the online volunteer packet below, selecting the school* or department from the drop-down menu:
    2. Submit a copy of a photo ID, such as a Driver's License.  If you will be volunteering in person, submit a copy of a current TB test and proof of COVID-19 vaccination (if vaccinated).
      • These should be scanned and attached to the volunteer packet.
    3. The site or department administrator will review the application and either approve or deny the request.
    4. The school site or department secretary will notify you when you are cleared to volunteer.

    Please be aware that all volunteering is handled through the individual school sites and departments — we do not have a volunteer pool that is monitored at the district level.

    *Washington Open Elementary School volunteers will be provided a volunteer packet by the school site.
