Parents – Please make sure your background check is current before you chaperone a field trip. We need at least 72 hours PRIOR to the field trip to run the background check. Background checks are good for 2 years. If you are driving, we also need a copy of your insurance. If you have questions about whether you are current, you can email the Volunteer Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call us at 252-2108. Forms can be downloaded off the website at http://www.seattleschools.org/schools/johnhay/volunteering/vol_forms.html.
