Thank you for your interest in volunteering at WMS. Please complete this form to verify that you have read through the volunteer training. You will be prompted upon completion of this form to submit your background check authorization via WATCH.
Please note: You will not be cleared to volunteer until you background check authorization and proof of immunization is submitted.
By signing below, I agree that I have completed the WMS Volunteer Training, I understand the information in the training and agree to comply with its guidelines. As a condition of volunteering for WMS, I accept and assume the risks of personal injury or property damage that may result from my volunteer experience, including but not limited to any activity while volunteering on school property. I hereby agree to waive all claims arising out of any such injury or damage. I also agree to respect the confidentiality of all information concerning students, staff or other participants with whom I work.
By signing below, I agree to abide by the following guidelines for confidentiality:
Student privacy is protected by federal law. Volunteers are not to discuss a child's progress, behavior in school or ability with that child's parent or anyone else. This holds true whether you are on school property or elsewhere.
The head teacher and other designated school officials hold primary responsibility for informing parents about their child's behavior, progress and activity in school.
All volunteers shall pass on any comments or information given by a parent about their child to that child's teacher.
Do not discuss confidential school issues in front of your own children or with your friends.
Breaking confidentiality is a serious lapse of judgement and is considered grounds for withdrawing the opportunity for you to work as a classroom volunteer.
As a reminder, proof of MMR immunization is required for volunteers who wish to work on an ongoing, regular basis with students (ex. weekly reading parent). This is not a requirement for occasional volunteers who may include, but are not limited to, a parent or guardian helping on a field trip, special guest presenter, parent/guardian/family member, or community member helping with a cultural celebration.
