Monroe Public Schools: Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Monroe Public Schools! Many opportunities are available to become involved. A few are listed below as examples but don’t let this list restrict your interest. We strive to find the perfect fit for our generous volunteers.
Requirements for Volunteering
Monroe Public Schools pride themselves on keeping children and volunteers in our schools safe. For the safety of the volunteers and our students, volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer packet each year. Applications are available online in English and Spanish and can be obtained from your child’s school, Monroe Public Schools Administration Building (200 E. Fremont in downtown Monroe). The application includes the Washington State Patrol Criminal History Background Check form. If you plan to volunteer at your child’s school, return the completed paperwork to your child’s school’s office. If you do not have a child in our public schools, then return your packet to Rosemary O'Neil in the Administration Building.
Questions? please call or email Rosemary O'Neil 360-804-2503 or email@example.com.
