A key part of Garfield Elementary’s total plan is community involvement. Volunteers are needed in the classroom to make copies of instructional materials and help the classroom teacher. If you are interested please talk to your child’s classroom teacher regarding how you can volunteer in the classroom. All volunteers must conform to CUSD guidelines by submitting a volunteer application and picture ID to the school office each year.  To remain in compliance with California law, we are now required to have a clear TB assessment with the last 4 years .  This assessment may be completed by your family physician, or at no charge at one of the CUSD TB Assessment Clinics, on the dates listed below.  Until we receive your TB assessment, your application is pending and you are not cleard to volunteer on campus or chaperone a field trip.  While the CUSD volunteer application must be completed  annually, the TB assessment will only need to be done every 4 years. Volunteers should adhere to the CUSD dress code when volunteering in the classroom and obtain a volunteer badge from the office before going to the classroom. Please do not bring small children with you to volunteer.
CUSD TB Assessment Clinics will be held at the  the Professional Development Building on the CUSD District Campus at 1655 David E Cook Way, Room 3.  Dates for the clinic are:


Spring sports sign ups will be January 29, 2019.  To get a head start, the Elementary Athletic Packet, and Buchanan Area Code of Conduct form, both of which are mandatory to participate in CUSD sports.


The California Education Code, Sections 32220 and 32221, requires that nay student of any "Educational Institution" who practices for or participates in any inter-school athletic event MUST be insured for $1,500 of insurance covering the medical expenses of accidental injuries. This applies to all sports and to all participants of any age.

This mandatory insurance requirement is also extended to students who accompany an athletic team to an extra-mural athletic event and while performing their function as a member of the band, song leaders, yell leaders, etc.

Consequently, students must be excluded from the team and from activites relative to an athletic event unless they have either purchased the school's regularly offered plan, or their parents can assure the District that adequate insurance is in force which meets the requirements of this law.

If you have not purchased the accident plan offered through the school for your child, please click the link below for our insurance verification form. Please print, complete, and return this form to the Garfield office. Your child will not be allowed to practice or participate until this form has been completed and returned, or you have purchased the insurance plan offered by the school. Enrollment forms in this plan will be available in the school office.
