I agree with Westernpamom, that there are so many hoops to jump through, parents are treated like criminals; guilty until proven innocent. I have been the victim of rude treatment when simply going to eat lunch with my child on his birthday.

My guidelines for volunteering: If it allows me extra time w/my daughter (i.e. classroom party helper, chaperoning a field trip) I try my best to be there. I don't help w/ set-up/clean-up @ school events or concessions. I work & time is too precious!

I don't volunteer. My school now requires several kinds of background/medical tests I need to pay for every year, or I can't even walk into the school. I refuse to do this. It seems a ridiculous requirement. We are their parents for pete's sake!

I go in every Monday and help with the Kindergarten reading group or play word games. Then I eat lunch with my child. I also attend and bring things to all school parties. Since I volunteer only on Mondays I do not burn out. : )

Our school gives us mandatory hours (15) that we must give to the school in one way or the other. It is very easy if you don't mind stuffing envelopes or being a lunch mom. I think they even give working moms the opportunities to work on paperwork.

My school makes it very hard to volunteer unless you are a stay home mom.

Our Parent teacher group meetings are generally 7pm in the evening at the school which works for working moms and the stay at home! Some of the activities do take place during the school day but we plan ahead so that you can make arrangemnts if need

Our school has a volunteer tea at the end of the year to celebrate the volunteers who have worked thru out the year. The teachers and staff help out with refreshments and it generally announced so if a working parents could take a few hours off.
