Classroom Volunteers

Our students at Gant succeed due to everyone in our community working together.  Parents are a critical piece of this partnership and we seek to involve YOU in many different ways!  We understand many of you are also very busy in your professional lives, which may make volunteering difficult, but involvement can come in many forms.  If you have an idea or seek to understand elements of our school, please feel free to come in to the school office, call on the phone, or send an email.  We will do our best to contact you within 48 hours.  Our school telephone number is (562) 430-3384.

VIPS Program

We encourage parents to be involved in the education of their children. Parents may arrange volunteer opportunities with the teacher once their Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) application has been approved.

Please see our VIPS letter that has a link to the current VIPS application, and to the required Covid Agreement.  The VIPS procedure has changed a bit because of Covid. Volunteers will be submitting their VIPS application and current TB test via a Google doc that goes straight to the VIPS office.  They will need to submit the Covid agreement document to Brenda Camrin, office supervisor, along with a copy of their vaccination card. If they are not vaccinated they will need to bring in a diagnostic negative Covid test for each week that they are volunteering.

Completed applications are submitted to the District Office for processing. Processing typically takes 3 - 6 weeks.

Returning VIPS must have a valid-clear TB Test on file. VIPS with an expired TB Test may not volunteer until a new clear TB Test is on file at the district and school office. VIPs applications and TB tests are valid for 4 years.
