Visitors / Volunteers


We invite you to visit your child's classroom as a way to stay informed about your child's education. Regular communication with the teacher about his/her progress and social emotional development is essential for your child's success and we encourage it. Checking in with the teacher at drop off can be useful, but may interfere with instructional time if the discussion is lengthy. Please make an appointment, leave a note, email or call the teacher to set up a conference. 


When you have scheduled a visit with the teacher, please keep in mind the following: 


1) Sign-in & Pick-up a visitor's pass in the Main Office

2) Enter and leave the room as quietly as possible

3) Do not converse with the students, teacher, or classroom aides

4) Do not interfere with classroom activities

5) Keep the length of the classroom visit to 20 minutes (unless prearranged with the teacher)

6) Return the visitor pass and sign-out in the Main Office 


Colfax would not be the wonderful place it is without our dedicated volunteers! Some volunteers give hundreds of hours and some give a few. Please sign-in at the Main Office before entering the school to volunteer. And remember to also sign out when you leave. 


LAUSD District policy that Colfax will be implementing for the 2018 – 2019 school year. 


All volunteers that have direct contact with students will need to be processed through the District with the following items:

1.     Complete (or roll over last year’s) Volunteer Application at

2.     Turn in your printed application (with a current TB test if we do not already have one on file) and a signed Volunteer Commitment Form to the Colfax office.

3.     Have fingerprint clearance by the FBI and DOJ (to be processed at an LAUSD fingerprinting site).  The cost for this is $56, paid only by a money order or cashier’s check.

We are working closely with the two volunteer offices in the valley to ensure that our volunteers are processed in a timely manner.  We encourage you to take the first 2 steps NOW, so that we can process as many volunteers before the school year starts.  The Colfax office will be accepting applications starting today through June 25th and starting again on July 19th.   Our office will need to schedule your appointment to be processed with the District. To be fingerprinted through LAUSD you will need your social security card and valid ID. Your name must match exactly on both of these documents. 


If you have questions or concerns, please call the office at (818) 761 – 5115 or email Lisa Adler at or Sonja Young at
