O'Hara will be reinstating our Family Involvement Program (FIP) hours for the 2022-23 school year. This program requires that each family complete 36 hours of volunteer activity at O'Hara. Each incomplete hour will be charged a fee at the end of the school year. If you have questions about FIP hours please email Barb Whitford in the front office.
In order to complete FIP hours each volunteer needs to have completed our volunteer requirements. We are requesting that parents complete their background check and this year’s online requirement(s) now so they are cleared to volunteer before the school year begins. You must have completed the volunteer requirements in order to volunteer.
