    • Bring a check to a membership meeting or drop off/pick up

  • Alternative Methods:

    • Pay via QuickBooks invoice. This incurs a $5 fee to you and additional cost to WPNS.

Requirement Questions:

How often do I need to work in the classroom?

  • The amount of time you are required to work is dependent on how often your child attends school. We also offer a tier that doesn't require parent work days. 

Can an alternative caregiver (nanny, grandparent) work instead of a parent?

  • Usually no, unless special arrangements have been made and the appropriate paperwork is completed. 

What are service hours?  How do I get them?  How do I track them?

  • Both workdays and family jobs count towards your service hours requirement (25 hours for the school year). Each family is required to do their family job, which counts towards service hours. Typically your family job isn’t enough to meet the total hours required, which is why workdays and other tasks or project opportunities are available. These additional opportunities are usually shared in the weekly Digest email or as a “punch list” on the members section of the website.

How does the school determine work days?

  • The office sends out a “preference sheet” with the initial sign up paperwork. 

What are my fundraising requirements?

I missed a membership meeting. Where do I find meeting minutes?


How do you determine air quality days?
