Parent Involvement

Our Lady of the Visitation School wouldn’t be the community it is without wonderful parents and grandparents who willingly donate their time. All volunteers need a current Catholic Police Clearance, and this can be processed through the school on your behalf. Opportunities for involvement include:

  • Classroom helpers
