Parent Volunteer Forms


Due: Prior to volunteering at school functions

PA law requires adults to complete paperwork to volunteer at any school functions. There are two types of volunteers:

  1. Limited contact volunteer (parents helping at events with faculty present)
  2. Substantial contact volunteer (parents alone with students with NO faculty present)

Please complete the appropriate form prior to volunteering and submit to:

  • Country Day School: Brenda Hafner, front desk
  • Junior School: Megan Vrcic, front desk
  • Middle School: Kristan Fisher, front desk
  • Senior School: Donna Ponzi (scan and email forms)
