Volunteer Requirements

  • All volunteers must sign-in at the school office, and visibly wear the volunteer badge provided.

Below are three requirements to be a school volunteer.

  • Safe Environment Training – One of the goals of the Office of the Protection of Children is to provide a safe environment for children. We do this by training all adult employees and volunteers using a program entitled Safe Environment Training.  The training can be done at https://dubuque.cmgconnect.org/
