While the City School District of Albany continues to limit the number of visitors in our buildings due to COVID-19, the district is able to welcome parent and guardian volunteers on a limited basis.
The following requirements apply for parents and guardians wishing to volunteer at their child’s school:
- The volunteer activity should be targeted and meaningful (i.e., book fairs, field day, field trips, dances/events at the middle schools).
- “Room parent” opportunities that would occur on a regular basis are not allowed at this time.
- All parent/guardian volunteers will need to provide proof of vaccination or be tested for COVID-19 just prior to entering our buildings.
- Proof of vaccination:
- Principals will keep a record of proof of vaccination of the parent/guardian volunteer.
In alignment with our ongoing COVID-19 health and safety protocols, the district is not currently allowing other volunteers in our buildings unless they are directly affiliated with a community partnership at a specific school.
