We know that this year will be different in many ways, however, one thing that will never change is the need for volunteers. Volunteer opportunities inside the building are not available at this time, however we strongly encourage everyone to submit or renew your ADDitions application now! The Additions system is our main communication tool and is the best way to stay up to date when volunteer opportunities do become available.
The application and renewal process can take up to 4 weeks, so please start now as anyone wishing to serve as a field trip chaperone, in class volunteer, room parent, or special area (Drama, PE, Art, Media) volunteer must register with OCPS by completing an ADDitions School Volunteer Online Application. ADDitions is the volunteer management system that OCPS uses to run background checks, establish volunteer opportunities and log and report volunteer hours. This application must be renewed every year! On-line registration is quick & easy, but approval may take a while, so please start early! The system is available HERE!
NEW THIS YEAR! – when applying or renewing, you will be agreeing to a COVID-19 Acknowledgement in addition to established policy guidelines. Every ADDitions volunteer must agree to the following during the registration/renewal process. Failure to comply may result in termination of volunteer status. Click on each to open & review each carefully as many changes have been made!
Please contact email@example.com with any questions!
