    Volunteer Overview

  • Volunteer Program Update:

    Edina Public Schools has made the decision to limit visitors, including volunteers, to our schools. As a result, we will not have a student/adult volunteer program for summer 2021. Questions? Please contact Cheryl Gunness by email or phone: Cheryl.Gunness@edinaschools.org or (952) 848-3944.
