Hello Parents and Caregivers,


Field trips and school volunteer opportunities are in full swing!  Many thanks to everyone who helps our school be the best it can be for our students.


I have a few very important reminders about volunteer clearance that are common issues:


  • The first step to volunteering is registering!  Please register before you get fingerprints or submit a TB test.  If you don't register first, the whole clearance process gets messy and takes longer.
  • If you have been cleared to drive on a field trip by the Oakland Public Education Fund, please make sure you submit to the RHS office a Declaration of Driver form, a copy of your insurance, and a copy of your drivers license (we will make copies for you).  You only have to submit these once a school year, not for every field trip!  Many of you have not submitted all three items.  If you are one of these people, please submit any missing documents ASAP.  You will not be allowed to drive until you do so.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about the volunteer clearance process.  My email is


Thank you!
