How to Volunteer
 
Thanks for your interest. . . volunteers are essential to our school!  We are grateful for every second you can give, there is no such thing as too much or too little!  There is no experience necessary and there is guidance along the way.  To get started, just follow these steps.
  1. Complete LISD background check application.  This is required for all volunteers who will be working on site or at school events.  NEW volunteers should apply immediately.  RETURNING volunteers must apply every 3 years (if you are unsure, there is no harm in submitting another application.)  The application can take up to 3 weeks to process so do it TODAY!  
     
  2. Check out our many volunteer opportunities on the Hicks VOLY Site  and select what best meets your schedule and interest.  
     
  3. Report to school for your volunteer duty and enter through the front office.  You must have your driver's license with you in order to be allowed to enter the school.  Please present your driver's license to the office personnel and let them know that you are there to volunteer.  Once your license has been scanned and you are approved to enter the building, they will print out a name tag for you.  Please wear the name tag the entire time you are in the school.  When your volunteer shift is over, please exit through the front office and check out with the office personnel.  Your name tag can then be thrown away.  
     
  4. Check the Hicks VOLLY site regularly for new volunteer opportunities.
     
Some Tips to Remember:
 
  • All information a volunteer hears or has access to should be kept confidential.  Please do not share student/teacher information with anyone. 
  • Please do not express any differences of opinion or dissatisfaction in the presence of students.  Any matters of concern should be taken to the volunteer coordinator, the teacher or the principal. 
  • Remember that although you are a volunteer, you are depended upon by many.  If you are unable to fulfill your responsibility, please try to find a replacement or contact the volunteer coordinator in a timely matter so other arrangements can be made.    
  • Remember the dress code.  Volunteers set an example for the students, so it is important that you present yourself accordingly. 
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Carrie Batson, Volunteer Coordinator.
