    Volunteering During Remote Learning

    Lake Washington School District recognizes the value of volunteers and their contributions to our students’ education and our District mission. At this time during remote learning, the District is focused on providing educational essentials to our students. Following guidelines from OSPI, the District will be limiting nonessential visitors and volunteers to our schools. 

    For any essential in-person volunteering in our schools requested by a staff member, the volunteer: must be an approved LWSD volunteer, will need to go through the same attestation process/screening process as required for staff to be in the building, and will follow all safety protocols, including wearing a mask at all times and meeting physical distancing requirements.

    If a staff member determines that students need help from an approved volunteer through our online platform, Microsoft Teams, a staff member should organize, initiate and monitor the online session.

    Volunteers play an important role supporting student learning in Lake Washington School District (LWSD). Currently, LWSD has over 17,000 approved volunteers. These volunteers are parents, relatives, community members and students who are committed to helping students be successful. Volunteers enrich student learning opportunities in classrooms, in schools and on field trips.
