Make sure that you are ready to volunteer before school starts by filling out a LWSD Volunteer Application here or checking your status AND showing proof of your COVID vaccination in our school office. Your volunteer status will expire after 2 years, at which time you will receive an email notice from the Raptor System to renew.

If you can fill one of the roles above or have questions, please email
