    A note for all parents wanting to Chaperone for the Amherst Program

    There is a new online application process for Chaperoning for the Amherst Schools.  We will require all 2015 chaperones to fill out an application online even if you have had one from the past.  Having it done online will make it accessible to all administration, will be easier to track expiration dates, and will eliminate the need for hand to hand passing along with photocopying extras.    At this time, you WILL NOT need a background check unless it is an overnight stay.    This is for all chaperones traveling on the buses for games and competitions.  You can find the page by clicking on the link below.  If you are a full time volunteer coach of the band, you may also click below to find your online application

    You may find the application here.
