    We are excited to invite and welcome back our volunteers. We’ve missed all of you and cannot wait to have you safely back on campus supporting our staff and students. The need for volunteer and partnership assistance has continued unabated during the pandemic, and for many schools, it has increased exponentially. Due to the high demand, volunteers and campus partners will be allowed to visit campuses at this time, using the following guidelines:

    Requirement for Volunteers and Visitors

    Volunteers and visitors may come to campus only if they are not experiencing illness or any cold & flu-like symptoms. In addition, all volunteers must follow all Dallas ISD safety guidelines and masks are highly recommended. Further, volunteers and visitors must not have had exposure to someone with COVID in the past week.

    Your time, care, and resources will impact so many children and families. Welcome Back & Welcome to Dallas ISD.
