Volunteer at Arbor Heights

Thank you to those who volunteer at Arbor Heights Elementary. You are making an important contribution to our school and its students, and we value your time, energy and expertise.

Approved Arbor Heights Volunteer

When at school, you may notice some parents with yellow, laminated volunteer badges. You may ask “Why the special badges” and “How do I get one”? The parents with the laminated badges completed the volunteer screening process.

In the volunteer notebook (in the office) are volunteer screening forms. The form requests information about criminal background and authorizes Seattle Schools to complete a background check through the Washington Access to Criminal History (WATCH) system. This is an important step in ensuring the safety of our students.

*Please note: While all volunteers should be screened through the WATCH system, a criminal history does not automatically disqualify one from volunteering in the schools.
