  • Assist in the library
  • Help with field trips or PTSA sponsored events

If you are a community member interested in volunteering, please follow the steps below to become a volunteer.

Visitor and Volunteer Check-in & OUt PRocess

Welcome to Renton School District, we are so glad you are interested in volunteering in our schools.    As you enter our district properties, we want to share our new Visitor & Volunteer Check-in and out process.  As you enter into our buildings, it is required for you to check-in with the corresponding Office Manager.   This process is performed by possible manually signing in to a roster or using our volunteer and visitor management tool.   We use both tracking systems to:

  • Tracks daily volunteers and/or visitors coming onto and exiting any building within the districts. This information is very helpful to help identify occupancy headcount during an emergency as well as identify any person that should not be on property and notify pre-identified contacts.
  • We use a tracking system to monitor who is within the school to help in efforts where contact tracing is needed.
