Volunteer & Community Services


While our volunteer program may look different this year due to COVID-19, our commitment to supporting students and their families has not changed.  

  • To reduce risk to students and staff, volunteers and activities involving external groups or organizations will not be allowed in any school or building, during and out of instructional hours, until further notice.
  • This includes parent and community volunteers, classroom helpers, classroom speakers, mentors, tutors, guest speakers, etc.

The link to apply to become an SAISD volunteer will be available when our volunteer program resumes.
