    Volunteering can be weekly or once in a while depending on needs and availability. The most important factor is to bring enthusiasm for the job and to be a reliable presence once have signed up. Understandably life gets in the way of volunteering at times, please inform of your absence so adjustments can be made.


    1. Read, sign and follow the Volunteer Code of Conduct.
    2. Each volunteer working with children must have the report of a negative TB test or X-ray on file in the health office. The results are good for 4 years.
    Check with your healthcare provider or walk in at Minute Clinic (CVS). Public Health Centers no longer provide TB tests to individuals with health insurance. The North Coastal Regional Public Health Center (760) 967 4401 can be contacted for more information on Public Health Center hours and locations.
    3. Please always set up your volunteering with the classroom teacher or related volunteer coordinator in advance. This important step will allow you to be most supportive and will avoid any unnecessary disruptions.
