Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Horizons. We are grateful for all the time and positive energy volunteers dedicate to our school. There are many types of volunteer opportunities at Horizons including, but not limited to, classroom cleaning, parent liaisons, classroom assistance, school service days, special events, outdoor education, field trips, hearing and vision screening, and the Artastic fair.
Volunteering at schools has changed over the years and today, our focus necessarily needs to be on school and student safety while still providing plenty of opportunities for parent and volunteer support. Regularly scheduled classroom volunteers who will have contact with students, field trip drivers, and outdoor ed chaperones are required to have a current background check on file with the school.
Not all volunteers are required to submit a background check — if you are doing work at home to support a teacher, such as scholastic orders, or you are an occasional volunteer bringing a snack into a classroom you do not need the background check.
