We appreciate all the benefits volunteers bring to our school and to our children. We encourage having volunteers in the classrooms helping teachers and students. We must maintain high quality instructional time and uphold privacy laws, which protect our children. In order to volunteer here at Lincoln, we request that you follow the guidelines below. State law and county regulations require that volunteers who have contact with staff or students, either in classroom, library, computer lab, or at other school activities, have a TB (tuberculosis) clearance. A TB clearance must be met with a TB Mantoux skin test within 60 days before a volunteer can work directly with students or staff for the first time. Please bring proof of your TB clearance to the school office. It will be good for 4 years. You must also review and sign the Volunteer Confidentiality and Expectations Affidavit (link below) and turn it into the office along with the TB clearance. If you have any questions, please contact the front office.


    *In order to volunteer for this school year (2020-2021), you must complete the below form.  You can complete the form by clicking on the below link to print the form.  The printed form will need to be turned into the Lincoln Office before you're scheduled to volunteer.  If you're volunteering virtually you also need to download the volunteer background and use it for all zoom meetings.

    Volunteering Virtually:
    As you will see in the Volunteer Guidelines, we are requesting that volunteers use the attached virtual background to identify themselves as volunteers.  Here are the instructions for setting up the virtual background. 
    1. First download PNG image and save onto desktop
    2. Open Zoom and start meeting
    3. Click on "start video" icon with arrow pointing up and click on arrow to get "virtual background"
    4. Click on virtual background
    5. Click on the “+” icon as seen in the picture
    6. Upload the background from your desktop
    7. Make sure the “I have a green screen” and the “mirror my video” is turned off
    8. Click on the background of your choice after it's uploaded
    At this time, the virtual background is not available for Google Meets.  You or the teacher can create some other form of an identification badge for students and/or parents/guardians to easily identify the volunteer (i.e., certain colored shirt, actual name badge, etc.).
