Lafayette School District Volunteer Requirements

Do you want to volunteer at school?
Read to your child's class?
Drive on a field trip?
Then you MUST complete the below requirements before January.

This year the Lafayette School District is updating the requirements for on-campus volunteering. These involve some safety and health screenings (see below for details). We understand that these requirements will take some time and commitment on your part but they are vital in keeping our Bobcats safe and healthy!

Depending on how frequently you plan to volunteer, there are 3 tiers of requirements. Please find the appropriate tier for you and review their requirements below.

    

These requirements need to be completed by January 2, 2024 to be permitted to volunteer at the school.

(Please note that each school has its own unique form (but same requirements); families with children in more than one school will need to complete the volunteer form for each school.)


We hope to keep the Burton Valley campus FULL of volunteers!
Please help us do so by completing these requirements.
