Volunteering at Holland Hall is a wonderful way to spend time with your child during the school day, get to know other parents, help raise money that directly impacts your child’s school experience, and participate in fun events that benefit the entire community.
Parents who plan to volunteer in the Dutch Zone, lunchrooms and classrooms will need to complete a background check through KeepN Track.
Once your background check is approved, you will receive an email telling you where you can get a volunteer ID card. You will use that card when you check in to volunteer on campus. These background checks are good for 3 years. After 3 years, you will need to fill out the KeepN Track application again.
