Thank you for your interest and willingness to contribute some of your own time to help our students and contribute to the rich life of our school. The volunteers at Hutchins contribute in many varied ways and bring a diversity of skills and perspectives to our school.
The Hutchins School is committed to the health and safety of all those who learn and work at the School. In 2015 we seek to consolidate two new areas of important practice that go towards the health and safety of volunteers and those they interact with at our school.
