Dear Families and Community members,
Volunteers are an integral part of student success in our schools. Parents, guardians, family members, grandparents and community members alike are part of The Bellingham Promise and committed to providing a variety of tasks, skills and time to support student growth and development. And we are grateful.
We have heard from some of you the annual paper volunteer application is arduous and time consuming. With this in mind, we are proud to announce a new development that will make your volunteer job easier. Beginning today, the volunteer application will be accessible in an online format for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years. This new online format is a one-time web-based application that requires a renewal every two years per the Washington State Patrol check (WATCH). We encourage you to complete the application now so we can make any necessary adjustments to provide for a smooth transition for the start of the school year. You can find the application here.
In addition, there are now computers available in the lobby at the district office at 1306 Dupont Street for those who would like assistance or do not have computer access.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new online system, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued time and support of Bellingham Public Schools.
