Getting Started

Send an email to sjsoslunchduty@gmail.com to sign up for lunch or recess hours or for more information.  All volunteers will need to be certified through the Safe Environment program prior to sign up for Lunch or Recess duty.  Please see the HSA Handbook for more information.

PLEASE READ:  If your schedule changes and you cannot volunteer on a day you were scheduled, please email sjsoslunchduty@gmail.com or   so that we can see if someone else can fill in. The more notice you can provide, the better!

If more than 3 parents arrive for lunch duty, and outdoor recess is being held, we would love for someone to help out with recess (see recess schedule below).
