Volunteers

School Bus

Bowman welcomes all those who wish to volunteer! Parent involvement helps ensure a successful academic career. 

What you should know about volunteering:

  • All Volunteers must complete and turn in a Volunteer Application Packet (You may print one off this page or pick one up in the school office)
  • All Volunteers must complete a TB Test and return the results to the school office
  • All Volunteers must be fingerprinted by the district office and cleared to volunteer
  • Additional steps are required for chaperoning on school field trips
  • Parents should always communicate with teachers before going to classrooms to assist

Chaperoning Study Trips

All Study Trip chaperones must be fingerprinted and cleared prior to the study trip date.

If you are also driving students in your own personal vehicle, a copy of your valid drivers liscense and vehicle insurance must be submitted to the school office prior to the study trip. 

***If you would like to join your student on the study but will not be driving students (including your own student) or be left unsupervised with any students, you may meet the class at the site. Under no circumstances may a child be transported in your vehicle or students left under your supervision without an authorized person available.

District Office Fingerprinting

To ensure the safety of all our students here at Bowman Elementary, adults volunteering in a classroom who are left unsupervised with students must complete the fingerprinting process at the HUSD office. The fee for fingerprinting is $61 and you must schedule an appointment prior to going to the district office. To schedule an appointment contact the Human Resources Department at 510-784-2600.
