Parent Volunteer/Visitor Policy

Playa del Rey is a school community that encourages all parents to volunteer to ensure the success of all students. Volunteers are essential to the success of our school, and we are very grateful for the contributions of our dedicated volunteers.  Please note that all volunteers must sign-in the main office. Volunteer identification such as a label and/or badge is required while on campus. However, to maximize instructional time and minimize distractions, parents who volunteer shall be limited to 20 minutes per day at the discretion of the site administration.  Please schedule your volunteer time in advance with your student’s teacher for special activities, field trips, etc..  If you have questions, please feel free to contact the site administrator.

District (LAUSD) policy requires that all volunteers complete and application be fingerprinted if servicing 16 hours or more per week.  Please view this document for more details.  If you have any questions, please contact the school office at (310) 827-3560 and speak with office personnel. *Continuing volunteers need to renew their application every school year. A TB clearance is not necessary until after the 4th year.
