Visit or Volunteer at Bunker Hill

We encourage and welcome the ongoing involvement of our Bunker Hill families in school activities. All parents and visitors must sign in and show identification at the security desk when entering the school. We request that parents respect the work of teachers and not interrupt the school day by entering the classrooms without advance appointments/invitations. All classroom visits/observations should be scheduled through the principal in collaboration with the classroom teacher. We hope that all parents will attend conferences with teachers, attend regularly scheduled meetings, open houses, parent education meetings, and fundraising events. Parent volunteer opportunities are encouraged. All volunteers must complete the DC Public Schools Volunteer application and be fingerprinted prior to working with our students (see Volunteers below).

Bunker Hill Elementary welcomes volunteers. Volunteers can contribute to our community in a variety of ways including: assisting in the library, sharing your family’s culture, reading, chaperoning field trips, photocopying, organizing cleanup days, donating food for special events, translating, etc.

In order to volunteer in our schools on a regular basis, individuals need to follow the DCPS volunteer application process:
  1. Complete the volunteer form (available on the DCPS website).
  2. Complete a tuberculosis test.
  3. Bring the completed application, TB test result, and photo ID to the district office (1200 First Street NE, 10th Floor) to be fingerprinted. Please note that volunteers for one-day service events do not need to complete the process. Phone: (202) 442-5447 Email: dcpsvolunteers@dc.gov
