    Volunteering for the 2021-22 school year

    We have been happy to welcome our volunteers back into our schools, in a limited capacity. At this time, volunteers are allowed in the buildings, but not in the classrooms or shared learning spaces. There are some district programs/services that can’t be performed without volunteer support. We will be allowing these volunteers to continue to support our students following our current COVID guidelines.

    We will be following Governor Inslee’s vaccination mandate regarding K-12 volunteers. As of October 18, volunteers in our schools will have to be vaccinated. We are working on a process for volunteers to demonstrate proof of vaccination and for the district to add that information to the volunteer database.

    There are now two ways for volunteers to show proof of vaccination. These will be available until at least October 18, 2021:

    As a reminder, all volunteers will need to be an approved LWSD volunteer, follow the current masking and physical distancing requirements, and sign-in at the school office. 

    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.
