Hamilton Community Schools Volunteering Policy

Hamilton Community School policy states that all adults participating in school activities, on and off school grounds, are required to complete the online profile and be approved. 

FOR NEW VOLUNTEERS

Please note: Profiles are processed only during the school year and may take 5 to 7 days for approval. Volunteers will receive an email when approval is completed.

Complete an online profile **

-Complete your personal information

-Include the school(s) you would like to be involved in

-Include your child's name, grade and teacher (teacher for elementary only)

-Check activities you are interested in helping with

All volunteer opportunities are posted online, you must be an approved volunteer to sign up. This includes helping in the classrooms, recess helpers, field trip chaperones, etc.  Emails are sent out to approved volunteers announcing new opportunities! Once approved, you may also log in to the HelpCounter system (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) and see where you can help.

FOR CURRENT VOLUNTEERS

Please make sure your profile is up-to-date! Login with your username and password to verify your information.

A Note From The District Coordinator of Volunteers

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope this means you are interested in becoming a school volunteer or keeping your information current! Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions. 

Volunteering makes such a huge difference to the students, teachers and volunteers. It shows the students that they are important and that school is important as well. Your support is crucial as these precious kids grow and work their way through school. 

Volunteer opportunities are listed in HelpCounter, our volunteer software program. Once you become an approved volunteer, you will have access to sign up for activities you'd like to volunteer for. For the safety of our students, staff and other volunteers, only background checked, approved volunteers are allowed to be with students. Therefore, the only way to sign up for volunteering is through our software program. Only approved volunteers have access to sign up. The safety of our schools  and students is very important.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at tweber@hamiltonschools.us. I would love to help you get started or answer any questions you have!

Sincerely, 

Tara Weber
