    Food for Thought:

    • We often have parents come into the schools to help with parties, events for the students, and PTO functions.  In order to do this, we ask that all parents have their volunteer clearances.  If you think that you might be interested in volunteering at the school during your child's elementary years you might want to get started on obtaining your clearances.  If you click on the link, it will take you to all the information on our website regarding clearances.


    • Are you interested in the possibility of working for the school district?  We frequently have positions available that are great for people who want to be on a school schedule.  If you are interested click her: www.ldsd.org/employment  Remember to check back often for updates on opportunities.


    • Want to be a substitute aide and/or teacher?  https://www.thesubservice.com/substitutes  Visit STS to get started and let them know that you are interested in substituting at Lower Dauphin. You can substitute teach with ANY bachelor's degree.
