The HSA relies on parents and caregivers to help organize community-building events, fundraisers, teacher and staff appreciation, and more! If you are new to Murch or a returning family looking for ways to get involved - please take a minute and fill out our HSA Volunteer Interest Form.
Field Trip Chaperones
If you are interested in chaperoning class field trips, DCPS requires background checks for ALL parent chaperones. It is a simple and easy process:
1) Complete the DCPS Clearance Application.
2) After you submit your DCPS Clearance Application you will receive an email with a link to instructions to use to schedule and complete a FieldPrint appointment for fingerprinting. FieldPrint appointments can be made quickly and easily at many UPS stores across the city.
3) Once you complete FieldPrint appointment, you will receive a letter from DCPS which should be sent to Mary Eckstein, Murch's Director of Strategy & Logistics.
4) And now you are all set for two whole years!
Please refer to the DCPS Volunteer Site for more information about the required clearance process.
