Visitors/Parking/Volunteers/Booster Club

    We encourage parent involvement at Southworth. Parents are welcome in the classroom as volunteers, to have lunch with their child/ren, and to attend special events and assemblies. Visitors always need to sign in at the office on the kiosk and get a visitor’s badge from office personnel. Only staff members are allowed on the playground during recess time.
    As a courtesy to our teaching staff and to coordinate their schedule with yours, please make an appointment to meet with the principal, counselor or your child’s teacher when needing to talk to them.
    To minimize disruptions in the classroom, we do not forward phone calls to staff during the school day unless it is an emergency. We are happy to take a message or put you through to the classroom before or after school.

    For the safety of all Southworth students, parking is available for parents and visitors on the side of the school.  Follow the red sign/white arrow to the office for parent pickup. Please do not park in the bus loading area.

    Volunteers are a vital part of our students' education. To volunteer in a school during the school year, an application must be completed online. All volunteers must receive clearance through the Washington Access to Criminal History (WATCH) before volunteering. Clearance is granted for one school year only. Visit the help counter website to complete the application.  For more information, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Office at 360.458.6100.

    One way to get involved with your child’s education is to join the Southworth Booster Club. Booster Club meetings are held on the 1st Monday of every month in the Southworth cafeteria at 6:00 pm. Children are welcome to attend with their parents if necessary. The Booster Club hosts many events and activities throughout the year and supports our school programs.  You can always get in contact with the Booster Club by emailing at
