    Washington State law requires all students attending public schools (preschool-12 to provide proof of immunization, a medical exemption signed by a physician, or an exemption signed by a parent or legal guardian  before entering school.

    Every year, our schools are filled with volunteers! They are vital to the success of our programs. Every volunteer must read the Volunteer Handbook and complete an Online Volunteer Application. For more information about volunteering in our schools, please visit our Volunteer page on the website. We suggest that families fill their forms out at the beginning of the school year to avoid any last-minute applications later in the year. We request two-weeks to process volunteer applications.
