With the continued decrease in COVID-19 in our community, we are pleased to announce that the Monroe School District will begin the process of clearing volunteers to return to our schools. We will begin reviewing volunteer applications the week of April 11, 2022. Once volunteer applications have been cleared, we anticipate welcoming volunteers back in our schools the week of April 18, 2022 and volunteers will be  scheduled to work in the classroom at the discretion of the teacher. Please note that some classrooms may not have a need for volunteers at this time. Volunteers will be required to abide by all District COVID-19 safety protocols.

Once your volunteer application has been approved, you will also be required to provide proof of your vaccination status before volunteering in a classroom. You may do this by producing your vaccination card, a picture of your vaccination card, or by having an authorized Monroe School District representative verify your vaccination status through Washington Immunization Information System upon arrival to your volunteer location. 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Monroe School District! We have many opportunities available for families and community members to be involved in our schools. Below are just a few of our volunteer opportunities. We strive to find the perfect fit for our generous volunteers, so please don't let the list restrict your interest.
