Volunteers

Application Process

Parent Volunteers: We are proud of our school and enjoy visitors and parent volunteers.  Please speak to your child’s teacher if you are interested in volunteering in the classroom.  Volunteering does not have to take place solely in your child’s classroom.  We always appreciate volunteering in the library, other classrooms, as well as on study trips.

 

Please contact the school office for a parent volunteer application.  Approved volunteer applications are valid for the current school year.  A new application must be submitted annually.  Following your screening approval, you can meet with your child’s teacher to discuss the best time and days for you to volunteer. 

 

The law requires that all parent volunteers working on campus be fingerprinted and pass a TB test.  The entire process can take 4 or more weeks, so please start the process as soon as possible if you would like to be a volunteer on campus.  The fingerprinting is completed through Rialto USD. Volunteers must also obtain a clear TB test from their health provider or a local clinic.  Fingerprinting is valid for as long as you would like to volunteer in Rialto USD, it does not have to be conducted annually.  TB test results must be resubmitted every four years.  Please note that per state and federal law, fingerprints are not transferrable.  If you were previously fingerprinted in a different district or through a different entity, in order to volunteer in Rialto USD, you must have them completed through the district office again.

 

Chaperones for all field trips and study trips will not be permitted unless they have been fingerprinted and completed the volunteer process.
