Hi everyone! Hillcrest 101 is tomorrow - Sunday, September 11 @ 11am on the Playground. This is a chance to get familiarized with many of our Hillcrest traditions and pre-pandemic routines and traditions that we are slowly bringing back to life! Plus, it is another opportunity to get to know families, both new and "old". Kids are welcome!
Flyer can be found here.
Included in this event will be an opportunity for people to get part of their volunteer clearance completed (Fingerprinting & TB Risk Assessment Form Signed). If you are planning on taking advantage of these services, please be sure to follow all the links below and bring the appropriate forms with you for their completion!
As a reminder, you will need this volunteer clearance in order to drive on field trips or help out in any of our classroom activities. These need to be updated every few years . If you obtained your volunteer clearance previously, there is a link below where you can check your current status.
Below is the information regarding Volunteer screening (sent previously, but sending again as it pertains to this event).
OUSD Volunteer Screening
Step 1: Register with the Oakland Ed Fund (OEF) by filling out the Volunteer Questionnaire for Parents and Guardians. If you plan to drive on field trips now or in the future, please select “Field Trip Chaperone (Driving students in my car).”
There are fewer requirements for supervised (e.g., in class only) than unsupervised (e.g., field trip driver) volunteers. See Volunteer Options and Checklists for more info.
Step 2: Follow instructions in confirmation email from OEF, which will include submitting the items to firstname.lastname@example.org, based on level of clearance required:
- Liability waiver
- Proof of COVID vaccination and waiver
- TB clearance (see step 3)*
- Livescan fingerprints (see step 4)*
- Photo for ID badge
Step 3: TB clearance can be obtained by submitting:
- Proof of a negative TB test, OR
- TB Risk Assessment Form signed by a healthcare provider. *
*There will be Hillcrest parent-doctors on site at the Hillcrest Parent Orientation on Sunday, September 11th to sign completed forms - please be sure to bring your forms with you when you come!*
Step 4: After you register with OEF, you will receive a Request for Livescan Service form pre-filled with the proper DOJ codes, which you will need to take with you when you get fingerprinted. You can have your fingerprints done at any licensed Live Scan Location. *
*There will be a mobile fingerprinting service on-site at the Hillcrest Parent Orientation on Sunday, September 11th. To be fingerprinted, please bring the following items & forms:
- Completed Livescan form;
- Photo ID (Driver's License or DMV State ID); and
- Livescan/DOJ fee ($42). The preferred method of payments are cash, Venmo, or check.
Hope to see you there!
