In order to volunteer at Rolando Park Elementary School you must complete a Volunteer registration form and have a current record of TB clearance. The forms are available in the main office. Once the requirements are met you will be issued a Rolando Park Volunteer Name Badge to be worn each time you sign in to volunteer on campus.

Parent Center

The Parent Center is located in the front corner of the school. It is an informal place for parents to meet, talk, share a cup of coffee, receive important information, and/or work on projects for the teachers and school.

Classroom Visits

We welcome your visit to the school and your child's classroom. Please arrange with the classroom teacher IN ADVANCE for class visits or conferences. This helps keep interruptions to the instructional program to a minimum. ALWAYS sign in at the office before entering campus.


Weekly on Mondays family bulletins and informational flyers are sent home. Please check your child's backpack on a regular basis particularly on Mondays. Reminders to parents are frequently sent using Connect Ed messages via telephone. Other venues for information are Assemblies and Principal Chats. Finally, please check the school marquee for current information on school activities.
