Thank you for your interest in making Hearst Elementary a wonderful and enriching learning environment for our children! A wide range of volunteer opportunities are available at Hearst Elementary throughout the academic year. Whether it be chaperoning a field trip, helping during the many events on campus or offering assistance in the classrooms or front office, you do make a difference!

Volunteer Application & Requirements

The district requires that all new and returning school volunteers complete the volunteer application form every year and obtain a TB clearance every four years. You can either get the TB test from your doctor, clinic, or have your doctor complete a Risk Assessment Questionaire. If there is a "yes" to any of the questions on the assessment, a TB test would be required.

2021-22 Volunteer Application
TB Assessment Questionaire (doctors must complete this form. Please print and bring to your doctor. A "yes" answer to any of the questions will be cause for a TB test)
Fingerprint Clearance (read below)

Also, an additional form and background check/fingerprint clearance must be completed by volunteers driving for field trips (Category D) and for overnight chaperoning (Category D). All drivers must provide a copy of their driver's license and proof of valid current automobile insurance to the front office each school year. You will need to go down to the district "Live Scan" for the fingerprinting.

All forms are available in Hearst's front office for your convenience.

Please take the time to consider how you would like to participate and return the necessary paperwork to the office or in your child's take-home folder as soon as possible. And whenever volunteering, please remember to sign in at the office and receive your label to wear during your time on campus.
