Recess Game Leaders

Lockwood is looking for ways to create a more engaging and fun recess for all our students. To do this they are asking for your help in leading some organized games at recess (students will have been pre-taught the expectations and rules in advance). No special knowledge is required on your part–we’ll teach you the game–and it’s a great way to help recess time run smoothly and safely. If you can volunteer to monitor a structured game once a week (or even several times a week!), please sign up here for “September Recess Game Leaders” slots. We appreciate your support! If you have any questions please contact Assistant Principal, Sean Schoenfeldt, at or 425-483-5813.

Volunteering at Lockwood

We have so many enrichments planned for this year, but we can’t do any of them without volunteers. And we can’t use volunteers unless they’re approved each year by NSD. To get approved for Level 1 status for 2022-23, please:

STEP 1: Visit

and fill out the online Level 1 Background Check form. Note that all volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Families that wish to ask for an exception would need to complete that process with the district.

STEP 2: Download and fill out this “Release Form”

which allows NSD to tell us that you’re authorized to volunteer. Email completed forms to with the subject line of “Lockwood PTA Volunteer Status Release.” This is a new step this year. So, please mention it to anyone you think might already have signed up to be a volunteer and might have missed filling out this release form.

NSD tries to turn these volunteer applications around quickly, but it can take up to a month to process. Please submit your volunteer application ASAP!

Ps: If you’re new to volunteering at Lockwood, we encourage you to check out this short “Lockwood Volunteer Guidelines” video (there’s some outdated info about masking, but it’s mostly up-to-date) below:
