Volunteer Program

Welcome,_Volunteers! Card IconWelcome, Volunteers!Top of Page

In order to be eligible to volunteer in your child’s classroom or school, you must complete the registration application and have an up-to-date CORI on file with the Newburyport Elementary Schools. In addition, if you will have unmonitored contact with children (i.e. lunchroom or field trip volunteer) you will also need to be fingerprinted.


Bring the completed CORI form along with your driver license to the Administrative Assistant at our school office.  Please note CORI's are only valid for three years; after that you must reapply.


In keeping with Newburyport's continued focus on safety, we are asking volunteers/parents to be fingerprinted in two instances:

· If you are going on a day or overnight field trip and will have direct and unmonitored contact with children;

· If you are a lunchroom volunteer and will be bringing children out to the playground. Parents who volunteer in the classroom DO NOT need to be fingerprinted, as there is always another adult present.


Massachusetts has contracted with MorphoTrust for fingerprinting.  To book your appointment, click here.  Or visit the website at
