Volunteer with Us
While COVID-19 Measures are in Place
In-person visitors and volunteers
will not be allowed in CBE schools at this time. This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone. Currently, parent volunteers are not permitted in the school building. However, we are optimistic that we will find ways to work with parent volunteers later in the school year.
Please visit our
COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.
We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.
