School Visits

We welcome volunteers!  Research has proven that the more involved and active parents are in their child's education, the more likely children will be to reach their full potential.  For safety, no matter what the reason for your visit, please stop by the office first to pick up a visitor or volunteer badge.  This identification must be worn while you are at Westhoff.

If you would like to visit the classroom, please speak with your child's teacher first.  Conferences should also always be scheduled ahead of time rather than trying to talk with the teacher when he or she has class.  This will help protect valuable instruction time. 

Please call no later than 9:00 a.m. on any day you are coming to eat a school lunch with your child.  This allows our cooks enough notice to adequately prepare additional food as needed.  Please feel free to bring in a lunch if desired.

School volunteers are always appreciated.  Teachers often seek and utilize parent volunteers.

It is the Fort Zumwalt School District's policy to require background checks on all parent volunteers.  If you plan to volunteer during the school year, please see our office for the necessary forms.  Background checks must be completed before volunteering.  Please be sure to allow enough time to complete the forms and have the check completed prior to the dates you plan to volunteer.
