Volunteer Information




We welcome volunteers - whether you can help a little or a lot, we need your help! 

Per District policy, all volunteers who work directly with children must have a clear TB test and be fingerprinted through the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. This includes field trip chaperones. Volunteer instructions and forms are available at here.  Please note that the appointment times for fingerprinting fill up very fast, so we recommend as soon as you have your clear TB test, that you make an appointment!

Once we receive your clearance from the District, you are all set to go!  There are a variety of ways to volunteer - in the classroom, on a project at home, Parent Faculty Club activities, crossing guards, drop-off zone supervision, playground/cafeteria supervision and at various events throughout the year.
