EBS loves volunteers, who are an essential part of our school program.
The Academic Fundraising Partnership (AFP) coordinates many opportunities to volunteer at E.B. Scripps. Sign up at the annual Volunteer Fair or on Back-to-School Night. You can also become a volunteer by contacting the AFP, your child’s teacher, or by requesting information in the school office. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in their child’s classroom, library/media center, Physical Education Program, or the school office. Parents can volunteer at a regularly scheduled time, assist with study trips and special events, or offer to complete a task at home.
Parent and community volunteers must complete an application and be cleared of tuberculosis (TB) before volunteering on our campus. According to state law, all staff and volunteers must have clearance from tuberculosis on record. The clearance is good for four years.
Parent and community volunteers must sign in at the office and pick up a volunteer or visitor badge before entering the school. All volunteers must sign out each day in the book provided in the office.
To protect the confidentiality of our students, the following jobs are not given to volunteers:
- Jobs that require access to office and student records.
- Jobs that reveal information about student progress.
- Jobs that take the student away from the supervision of a teacher.
Volunteer clearance is not needed for the following events: Your child’s birthday celebration (if the grade level celebrates birthdays); Grandpersons Day; Read Across America; Jog-a-thon; performances; all events after school hours.
