A large part of the school’s success has been the invaluable number of hours donated to the school by parents, community members and staff. As a parent or community member we value your help, skills, and knowledge!

Volunteers are needed in the classrooms, for morning supervision before school, during recess & lunch hour, for field trips, in the office and after school. Ask your classroom teacher for specific ways you might contribute to their classroom, and/or bring your ideas to your teacher or the school, and we will see if we can make it happen!

There are many different opportunities for volunteers, but if you would like to volunteer in the classrooms or school, go on field trips, or work with students, you will need a processed volunteer background check. Volunteer packets and forms are available in the Elementary and MS/HS offices. For more information, please contact the office at the school where you would like to help out!

In compliance with Oregon Health Authority rules related to COVID-19, vaccination is required to volunteer.

If you would like to volunteer but have a strongly held religious belief that prevents you from vaccination complete the OHA COVID-19 Vaccine Religious Exception Request Form and schedule a time to meet with Mr. Tompkins by contacting any office.
