Volunteering in LWSD
We are happy to welcome our volunteers back into our schools. All volunteers should complete a volunteer application and be approved before they can begin volunteering.
Governor Inslee’s vaccination mandate regarding K-12 volunteers is still in effect. All volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated (both doses of a two-dose series or one dose of a single-dose shot) or request an exemption from the vaccination mandate. The process to show proof of vaccination or to request an exemption is outlined below.
If you have already shown proof of vaccination to a district staff member and the information has been added to your volunteer account, you should not have to show proof of vaccination again.
There are several ways for volunteers to show proof of vaccination at this time:
LWSD Volunteer COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption Request Process
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) volunteers can submit for religious or medical exemptions using the forms below. Each exemption will be considered by LWSD. If the religious/medical exemption is approved, certain accommodations may be made to ensure the safety of all students and staff in our buildings, and the volunteer.
The completed forms should be sent to the LWSD Volunteer Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Medical exemption form for volunteers - COVID-19 vaccination
- Religious accommodation form for volunteers - COVID-19 vaccination
If you have any questions about your approval status, please contact Chris Robison. If you’ve let your volunteer approval status lapse or you need to apply for the first time, please fill out the online application.
Share your talents, gain experience and inspire a child
Volunteers play an important role supporting student learning in Lake Washington School District (LWSD). These volunteers are parents, relatives, community members and students who are committed to helping our students be successful. Volunteers enrich student learning opportunities in classrooms, in schools and on field trips.
