    Celebrating Public School Volunteer Week

    April 20 - 24 is Public School Volunteer Week

    While our school buildings are closed, our volunteers continue to play a key role in supporting our students and families. During this difficult time, we are heartened by the many ways individuals and families are offering to support each other.

    Seattle Public Schools families and community members have been stepping up, including supporting distribution of needed meals and learning packets to students and families. Since March 16, district staff have distributed 96,000 meals to students with help from volunteers. We know that the need for student meals will grow over time and next week, meal delivery via school busses will expand.

    Our COVID-19 volunteer response team has also supported distribution of laptops to students, with a focus on high school students and students furthest away from educational justice who do not have another device available in addition to sewing masks, making videos, online tutoring, remote tech support for families, and so much more!

    Now, more than ever, we are thankful for our supportive community of volunteers. You can learn more on our volunteer webpage.
