Volunteer Opportunities:                                                   

Volunteering is one of the many ways you can give to the Torrey Pines Elementary School community.  Each classroom teacher has specific needs and guidelines to follow for volunteering. In addition to classroom volunteers our Enrichment Rotations need volunteers, as does the office, library, and various parent Foundation Events.  If interested in Foundation volunteering, and for details, visit our Foundation Volunteer Opportunities page or email Parent Volunteer Coordinator. 

 

Volunteer Procedure: 

Please contact the school office if you have any questions about applying to be a volunteer.

Each year parents, family members, and community volunteers MUST complete a Volunteer Application which includes the Volunteer Code of Conduct (read carefully and sign as well). 

In addition, proof of TB clearance must be provided or already be on file in the school office. (TB clearance good for 4 years)

NEW IN 17/18 **If you can answer 'NO' to all the questions on this TB Risk Assessment you are able to have your doctor or the school nurse clear your TB compliance.  The Risk Assessment is only valid for the current school year and must be completed each year.

The office staff clears volunteers by running a Meagan's Law database check.  Once volunteers are cleared an access ID TAG is assigned.  Each volunteer must check in and out with their "tag" and obtain a volunteer badge to volunteer during the school day.

 

Fieldtrip chaparones have additional paperwork and steps to complete. Those items needed must be provided for EACH field trip.
