Volunteering in SVSD

  • The Snoqualmie Valley School District welcomes the involvement of families and community members who are committed to supporting the success of our students. If you are interested in volunteering at school, please inquire about opportunities at your school office and follow the steps below. Volunteer applications are processed at each school site. If you're approved by one school, you'll also be eligible to volunteer at any other Snoqualmie Valley schools for two school years.

     

    All who volunteer in our schools must be approved as follows: 

    1. Read the SVSD Volunteer Handbook.
    2. If you agree to these guidelines, please fill out and sign our Volunteer Applications and return the forms to your school office with a copy of your official photo identification - needed to process a background check. (If you are applying to volunteer for a specific event, please allow at least 48 hours prior to your event.)
    3. You will be notified when your application is approved. If approved, your volunteer application is good for two school years, at any Snoqualmie Valley school.

     

    COVID Protocols pertaining to volunteers:

    The Governor’s directive (issued August 20, 2021) requires everyone, including volunteers, working for public and private K-12 schools to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or obtain a medical or religious exemption, effective October 18, 2021.  This requirement is still in effect for the 2022-23 school year.

     

    This requirement includes volunteers who engage or are reasonably likely to engage in work near others while physically present at a school building for longer periods of time, as well as contractors employed by the district who work in-person with others. The requirement does not apply to volunteers/contractors who are only physically on-site for brief periods of time and will not be in close physical proximity to others, according to OSPI guidance

      

    PLEASE NOTE:  Schools have discretion to determine who is allowed to be on campus. As we continue to monitor for COVID outbreaks, our schools may choose to limit volunteers or visitors to minimize community transmission and help keep schools open.
