Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I become a volunteer?
If you are interested in becoming a parent volunteer, please download or pick up the Penngrove Parent Volunteer form. Complete and turn into the office.
2. What documentation do I need?
We will need a completed volunteer form, a copy of your driver's license, COVID vaccination card (including booster)*, and proof of a negative TB test (must be less than four years old). If you are driving, we will also need a copy of the Field Trip/Parent Driver form with the required insurance documents.
*If you are not vaccinated, you will be required to submit documentation of a negative COVID test that has been administered within 24 hours of your volunteer date.
3. I have volunteered at Penngrove before. Do I need to complete a new form?
Yes! Every year you will be required to update your volunteer form. This makes recordkeeping on our end much easier. As long as all of your submitted documents aren't expired, you will not have to resubmit them.
4. Are my family members allowed to volunteer?
Parents/guardians and grandparents are allowed to volunteer. Any volunteer who is not a parent or grandparent must get fingerprinted before volunteering.
5. May I bring my baby/child with me to volunteer?
We ask that you find childcare for your other children when you come to volunteer at Penngrove. Thank you!
